Another new Husky?

RealDawg.com reported tonight that cornerback Kevin King of Bishop O’Dowd High in Oakland has committed to UW. Scout.com also confirmed the commitment.

King, listed at 6-2, 170, is rated three stars by Scout.com and three stars by Rivals.com, reportedly having offers from Utah, Colorado, Washington State and Cal, to name a few. He had also been reported heavily considering West Virginia, which had been the first school to offer.

King would be the 19th commit for UW’s Class of 2013, the first from a player listed solely as a cornerback.

ESPN’s scouting report of King says in part:

“King is a potential sleeper on the recruiting trail who should continue to see his recruiting stock rise. He is tall, a bit lean and lanky butwe like his upside once he grows into his body. … With added bulk and improved run support skills he may develop into a safety where he can utilize his great range and ball skills. A nickel in certain schemes is a possibility as well. Overall, King is a potentially scheme versatile DB with the blend of size, athleticism and ball skills to make plays in the secondary and add value on special teams at the next level. High upside guy and potential late bloomer.”

King saw his stock rise when he was named one of the standouts at the Oakland Nike Football Training Camp last spring. He also ran track last spring (here are some of his numbers, including a 12.15 100).
