First Offer a "Blessing" for King

Detroit Crockett (Mich.) junior cornerback Desmond King talks about his first offer.

Detroit Crockett junior cornerback Desmond King picked up his first offer today on a visit to Central Michigan.

"It's just a blessing right now," King said. "I just left there. It was good visit. We took a tour of the school. I liked it. I met the head coach (Dan Enos) first, then he brought me in, told me that they liked my highlight tape, the first one. They didn't see my junior one yet, they just saw my sophomore highlight tape, but they said they liked it and they offered me."

King won the defensive back MVP at the Best of the Midwest Combine on Monday, and also excelled at running back last season, but says the Chippewas are recruiting him as a corner.

Coming up this weekend, he will visit another in-state school.

"I'm going to reschedule with Purdue because I'm going to visit Michigan State this weekend."
