King has announced that he will be transferring from Marshall and complete his final year of eligibility at another program. King would have been a redshirt senior in the upcoming 2014 season. King always seemed to be on the outside looking in at the wide out position. It wasn't due to a lack of ability or issues off of the field, just Marshall seemed to be able to bring in players just a little bit better.
King was ranked the 213th best wide receiver in the country and had a huge senior year with 11 touchdowns and nearly 900 yards receiving. He had offers from Illinois, Kansas, North Carolina, and UCF. King came to Marshall highly touted, and redshirted as a freshman.
His redshirt freshman year at Marshall, he only had two catches, but one of them was arguably the biggest in his career. It was a two yard touchdown catch from Rakeem Cato on the road in Louisville. Marshall went on to upset the Cardinals with Teddy Bridgewater, 17 to 13. He ended the season with just two catches for 20 yards. King got a lot of playing time in that game due to the suspension of two Marshall starters, in Antavious Wilson and Troy Evans.
His redshirt sohopmore year, King had 15 catches, for 151 yards and two touchdowns. He added 5 catches for 109 yards and another touchdown this past season. This brought his three year totals to 22 catches for 280 yards and four touchdown grabs.
King is the second transfer of the offseason as quarterback Blake Frohnapfel will be playing the next two years at UMASS.
