Justin King, a 6-foot-3.5, 215-pound athlete from Dunwoody High School in Dunwoody, Ga., plays many roles for his team, so colleges have been recruiting him at a number of positions so far. Late last week, Syracuse came by his school and offered him and since then he's been reading up on the Orange.
"Syracuse offered me last Friday," King said. "The coach that came told me that he wouldn't be recruiting me. He said that I had an offer, but he was just stopping by to say hello and pick up some information on me."
"I've seen a couple of their football games and watch a lot of their basketball games," King added. "I have heard they are an excellent school academically and I'm learning more about them each day through research and things are clicking with what I'm finding out right now."
"On the football side of things I can play different positions, but they are recruiting me as an outside linebacker," King explained. "Their defense is really nice. The scheme of a defense doesn't play a factor because I'm willing to take a challenge and adjust to anything. I think you know who is truly a football player by who is really willing to adjust and overcome change. I see them as an up and coming program in college football with their new staff and that's what you want when you're looking at a school. They're just really trying to get a new tradition going with their football team right now."
King will be playing outside linebacker and quarterback for the Wildcats as a senior. He plans to visit Syracuse as soon as possible for an unofficial visit.
