The 5-9, 165 pound King is already off and running on a busy off-season plan. "I just got back from the Nike Camp a few weeks ago," King said.

I'm going to another one on the 12th of this month."

King believes now that he is on the initial radar of some of the top programs in Southeast, and that he may reel in a few additional offers with a strong showing this summer on the camp circuit. "I'll be going to the South Carolina camp, the Clemson camp, and a couple of one day camps."
