Rockarius King: Hearing From More Schools

When we last spoke with Rockarius King, the 5-7, 180 pound running back was hearing from a vast array of programs throughout the southeast region. Well since then, things have not slowed down in any way shape or form. Find out inside who else has been expressing interest in the talented ‘09 prospect.

During our last interview with Rockarius King, the gifted ball carrier was hearing from several DI powers such as Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee, to name a few. Well since then, several other programs have been inquiring heavily about the "featured back" from Timberland High School. "You can add Notre Dame to the list," King said. "I have been getting stuff from them, Texas, Alabama, LSU, and Kentucky."

Standing at 5-7, several have questioned King's ability to play with the programs mentioned above. Despite having many critics, King has managed to turn it all into positive energy. "I take the negative feedback from people, and use it as motivation," King said. "It gives me the urge to work that much harder."

On that same note, King has been dedicating his time to a very intense workout plan, and has been reaping the benefits of all the hard work he's been putting in. "I've really been working out hard in the weight room, and running a lot lately," King said. "I bench pressed 360 pounds the other day. My time in the forty went down also. The last two times I ran, I got a 4.39, and a 4.36. Those were my fastest times ever."

King will be hitting the ‘08 camp circuit hard and heavy this summer, to display his skills in front of the scouts. He is merely hoping that his performance will be convincing enough to land that first scholarship offer…
