Below are evaluation reports put together by Mike Sullivan and Frank Mantesta:

STRENGTHS: King has been a player watched quite a bit over the past month at such events as the IS8 Fall League by the reporters on this website. So we have a pretty good idea about his individual game. His strength has to do mostly with his ability to produce at different positions.

King has always given us the impression that he is fearless around the rim and seems to love the competition at a high level.

As his ability to make decisions with the basketball improve, King is likely to receive more division one interest. If he strengthens this part of his game, he will round out his individual game nicely.

Depending upon the level he goes on the college basketball level, King can play probably three different positions. If his ballhandling improves, it makes him an even more valuable prospect to recruit.
