King Upbeat About Auburn Camp Performance

Brandon King, who will be a senior lineman this fall, talks about his performance at an Auburn football camp.

Stockbridge, Ga.--Brandon King worked out for Auburn's coaches on Saturday at their one-day Senior Football Camp and the defensive tackle says he believes they liked what he did.

"They haven't offered me a scholarship yet, but I think they are getting close to it," he says.

King was one of approximately 300 prospects who attended the camp and he did well in the one-on-one drills vs. a variety of offensive line prospects. He says he enjoyed the event that featured prospects from across the southeast.

"I learned a lot of techniques," the rising senior says. "Coach Tracy Rocker helped me with my agility and my rip moves."

King measured in a bit under six-foot-three and weighed 281 pounds at the Auburn camp. At Stockbridge High, he is a player who sees action on both sides of the football.

"I play offensive tackle sometimes, but I like defensive tackle better and I think that is my best position," he says.

He is also a starter at power forward in basketball, but says his focus is on football. After his camp at Auburn he headed to Baton Rouge to work out at an LSU camp and says the Bayou Bengals are one of his favorites along with Auburn, North Carolina State, Troy, FSU and Miami.

King says he is interested in studying sports medicine in college and notes he is looking forward to his final season at Stockbridge High. "My goal for my senior season is to go to the state playoffs and win the championships.
