King has the ideal height that Steve Sarkisian and his staff are looking for on defense. At 6-3, he has the length to really cut down on passing lanes and be a real pain to try to throw over. He's also got great ball skills, which makes King's ceiling astronomically high. He really needs to get in the weight room though, or Pac-12 receivers are going to physical the snot out of him and his length and ball skills won't matter a whole lot.

With Tre Watson, Greg Ducre and Marcus Peters and Travell Dixon on the roster, King won't be counted on to contribute right away, which is great because of his aforementioned need for some time with Ivan. He claims that he'll be 190 by the time he gets to campus, and wants to get in the 200-205 range after a year or two in the weight program, and if he does that and maintains his mobility and flexibilty that would be fantastic.
