DL Jarriel King
North Charleston High School
North Charleston, South Carolina
6-foot-6, 270 pound prospect Jarriel King played well during the North/South All-star game Saturday afternoon in Myrtle Beach. "It went well. We won 21-12," said King.
"I did very well. I had four tackles and I had the last tackle of the game. As linemen we put the pressure on the QB. We had him scrambling the whole game."
King said the he really enjoyed his time in Myrtle Beach. "It was a great experience. It was an honor for me. I met so many talented people that were just like me. We practiced hard. I like being around those types of people. We were real busy and sometimes the body wasn't up to practice, but everyone did.
"That was my last high school game too. We talked about that. We wanted to let it all out."
On the recruiting front, King will visit both Clemson and South Carolina this January. "I'm visiting South Carolina on January 14, then I'm going to Clemson on January 21."
The North Charleston standout visited Death Valley for the first time in November when the Tigers whipped the Gamecocks, 29-7. "I went to Clemson to see the South Carolina game. It was nice. It was my first time at Clemson and it was very impressive."
The powerful lineman was impressed that he was able to meet Coach Bowden. "I've been to South Carolina so many times and I never met Lou. When I went to Clemson for the first time Coach Bowden took time to meet me," said King.
The senior standout knows exactly what he will consider when making his final decision. "I will look at the education and the environment. It's not just what's around me, but it's also the type of people I will be around. I want to go where I can I be focused. I do not want a lot of distractions."
The talented athlete is also playing basketball for North Charleston High. "I am one of the captains of the basketball team right now. I play center. It's good for me. It's something I like doing," added King.
Don't expect an early decision from the prize recruit. "My official visits will boil it all down. I will do some more research after them and probably make my decision close to signing day."
Coach Burton Burns is recruiting the talented defender for the Tigers. We will continue to keep you update on this outstanding defensive lineman from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2005.
