Now, King is focused on wrestling for team Illinois -- a travel team that competes against the best prospects from surrounding states. King, the 3A 225-pound state champion in Illinois has had a very successful wrestling season during this football offseason.
On the recruiting trail though, was the 6-7, normally 240-pound prospects first trip to Madison and one that he learned quite a bit about the area.
"The Badgers I like their head coach, he is a guy that has a lot of experience. When I was chatting with him, he’s got bags under his eyes and this guy looks like he just stays in his office all day long. Madison is really quiet, the campus is beautiful and you can see the state capitol," King said.
As for a decision, a cut in King's list is coming likely soon.
"I will either a top five or top six probably sometime soon. I will either tweet it out or something," King said. "I’ll probably take like three or four officials, I don’t think that I will need all five of them. I will decide after my senior season."
