King has four offers to his name

It's been a while since we spoke with Bakersfield DE Aaron King (6-4, 250). JCFootball.com caught up with the big playmaking defensive end and he updated us on recruiting, his offers and how his spring in the weight room went.

"I had a really good spring," King said. "I got in the weight room a lot and just worked hard in there with my teammates and my coaches.

"We work really hard here and it's really motivating to get in there with guys who are just excited to be in there and working on getting ready for the season. Things get intense and it's fully a competition to see who can do better."

King said he's gotten his bench up to 360 and he's also been working on a few moves that will allow him to get to the passer that much better.

"The hand-fighting is a big one," King said. "We work hard with each other. The ends and the offensive lineman really work hard on technique and just getting better so we can be the stoppers our offense needs us to be.

"I'm working out five days a week and sometimes I'm even throwing in a Saturday too. It's fun, but it's tiring too."

As a freshman for Bakersfield in 2006, King put up 10 sacks and teams have taken notice of his outstanding pass-rush abilities.

"Kansas State, Ole Miss, Arizona and UTEP have all offered me," King said. "Washington, Cal, USC and Texas A&M were also out quite a bit during spring ball too."

King said he doesn't have a timetable on when he wants to pull the trigger on his commitment, but he said he'd like to have things wrapped up before the New Year.

"I graduate in May, but I'd like to decide before the holidays if that's possible," King said. "It would make my life a lot easier if I did that, but I'm going to be really sure where I want to end up so I might need to wait for a while after that to make sure."

King will have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
