King said he does not have a written offer from Rutgers, but he is talking with the staff about taking an official visit next month, most likely Dec. 5 when the Scarlet Knights host West Virginia.
And, if a written offer comes through, King could be enticed to make his college decision.
"I'm thinking about actually committing to them, really,'' King said. "I see they have a good coaching staff and stuff. I think I have a good chance of getting a lot of playing time as a freshman and I like the academics.''
King said he has not been to New Jersey, but wouldn't mind leaving the comforts of home for college.
"When I was coming in for my senior year I thought I wanted to (go to college) outside of Louisiana,'' King said. "I think (Rutgers) is pretty good in academics, and I would get a good education.''
Destrehan coach Stephen Robicheaux added he has not spoken to Rutgers about his star receiver, but said he expects King to receive a few offers.
"He caught the winning touchdown in Superdome last year for us to finish 14-0 and win the (Class 5A) state championship,'' Robicheaux said. "He has good hands. He does a good job for us.''
