"It happened a couple weeks ago during my visit," King told GoBlueWolverine. "I was pretty psyched to say the least, honestly.
"I went down once and loved it. I watched the spring practice. It was awesome. They had amazing facilities. I met with the coach – It was awesome! It's a place I am looking at, it's amazing!"
Now that the 6-foot-6, 245-pounder has his U-M offer, he says his next step is to find out more about the program.
"First, I got to find out more about the education there," King said. "Because I really don't know too much about it. I do plan on going to the pros, but I do want to finish college first."
However, King admits he is building a strong relationship with the Michigan coaching staff early on in his recruitment.
"I have been talking to the coach a lot lately," King said on his talks with U-M. "Coach Curt Mallory has come down to the school, and it has been cool talking with him."
At the moment, King says he doesn't have a timeframe when he would like to commit.
