Diamond in the Rough: Noah King

The 6'1" 180 pound King put on a display last weekend at the Dallas NFTC. Will it bring him the offers he covets? It should.

It never fails. The state of Texas produces in the range of 350-450 Division I prospects every year but that's just the ones that are discovered. Countless others fall through the cracks and never get their chance. Noah King, out of Richardson High School, is one such player that has been overlooked so far. The 6'1" 180 pound safety prospect spoke with HornedFrogBlitz.com last Sunday after he competed in the Dallas NFTC.

"I think I did really good at this camp, especially during the position drills" said King. "A lot of it I knew because I train with Coach Mack and really the competition out here was a lot of what we emphasize during the week when we practice our one on one sessions."

Although King has yet to receive an offer, he's getting heavy interest from several schools. Louisiana-Monroe looks like they could be close to offering and schools like Arizona and Missouri have inquired about the hidden gem. So how does he feel he stacked up against a loaded defensive back roster on Sunday?

"With so much talent, it gives me a chance to see where I'm at compared to a lot of these elite guys" he said. "I think I did well and I feel like I showed what I could do out there."

"I don't have any offers right now but I know I'll get one soon" he continued. "ULM is close, they want me on campus and Arizona, Missouri and SMU are showing me interest."

With a great frame to add weight, King showed that he could stand his ground against some of the best receivers in the country. Play after play, the talented defender was in the right place at the right time. Proving that he wouldn't back down from the top players at the camp, King broke up several passes and nearly had a pick in team drills.

Overall, King has what it takes to play at the next level. It's just a matter of someone taking a chance on him and giving him that coveted first offer. Although TCU has yet to show interest in King, he says he would welcome the inquiry, should it come.

"I haven't heard from them yet but I would definitely be interested" said King. "They're close and I'm familiar with the way they play."
