Class of 2015 Alpharetta (Ga.) quarterback Austin King is in the midst of a playoff run with this team and now that his junior film is starting to get out plenty of schools are taking notice.
King recently added an offer from Middle Tennessee to go along with a Georgia State offer earlier in the year. But it seems as if it's only a matter of time before a few bigger schools start to pull the trigger on offers.
Among the teams pursuing King the hardest now are Mississippi State and West Virginia. He also has a visit to Notre Dame on the schedule for this weekend.
He was recently in Starkville for the Bulldogs game against No. 1 Alabama, and came away impressed. He shared his comments on Mississippi State and the visit.
"Mississippi State was good. I got there early and got my own kind of personal trip to see what was going on. They have nice facilities and I was pretty impressed with how they played against Alabama. The crowd was good, lots of kids were there but they took time to show me a lot of attention. I got to spend some good one-on-one time with Coach Collins. They said I'm the No. 1 quarterback in my class for them right now. I'm high on them right now. Maybe after their season is over we'll start talking more and they'll offer."
The Mountaineers came on the scene just this week, when WVU assistant coach Shannon Dawson reached out via social media.
"I talked to him tonight," King said Thursday. "He said he wants to watch me throw in person but that he really likes me. They're really interested right now He told me he really liked film and our conversation went well so we'll see how that goes."
King said he's not sure how much interest the Irish have, but they've flooding his mailbox, so he wants to get on campus and take a closer look.
"It should be interesting because I've been in contact with their recruiting coordinator online for a while," King said. "And I've been getting a good amount of mail from them so I just had to make the trip and see if they really have interest in me."
Even if his team's run through the playoffs continues, King's season will be over in early December. After that he said he's planning a busy camp season, with North Carolina, N.C. State and others on his list. However, he's hoping he won't have to grind it out on the camp circuit to earn more offers.
"West Virginia said they want me to throw but he said a lot of schools are probably going to come in and offer me soon because of my film," King said. "I probably will have to got to a few camps and show I've got but I'm OK with that."
