Bio: 
Two-year starter who joined the Gamecocks after transferring from junior college and led the team in pass breakups in each of those seasons. Made 41 tackles with two interceptions and 12 pass breakups in 2017 to earn an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Tied for the team lead with three interceptions and recorded 56 tackles (three for loss), one forced fumble and nine PBUs as a junior.
Pos: 
Inconsistent cornerback who flashes next-level skill. Instinctive, effectively anticipates the action and gets his head back around to locate the pass in the air. Feisty, mixes it up with opponents and nicely times pass defenses. Explodes to the ball out of his plant, shows cover skills in the deep and short fields and flies around the action to make positive plays. Plays faster than his 40 time and makes a lot of athletic pass deflections.
Neg: 
Plays off balance and haphazard. Timed poorly at the combine and generally looked unathletic. Possesses a thin build and lacks strength.
Analysis: 
King is a solid prospect with next-level size and ball skills who must play off the line of scrimmage or in zone coverage due to his lack of pure speed.
