Pittsburgh (Pa.) Gateway cornerback Justin King wants to make a decision on a college by November because he plans on enrolling at the school of his choice in January. He's set up an official visit this weekend with Michigan to help speed the process.
"They're playing Iowa at home, so it's a good game to attend and Michigan has always been one of my favorite schools and a program I'm interested in," said the 6-foot-0, 183-pounder. "I'm excited to see what they have to offer this weekend and how I mix with the players and coaches."
King, who is ranked as the No. 8 player overall in the country and the No. 1 cornerback, will be quite busy the next few weekends.

"I have Florida on Oct. 1, then Southern Cal on Oct. 15," he said. "Penn State will probably be my last visit on Nov. 15 and I might squeeze in either Miami or Ohio State for an official if I can. I don't really have a favorite right now, the visits will be the key."
King has led his Gateway team to a 3-1 record and has 640 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns on offense and one interception on defense.
"I probably have around five tackles," he laughed. "They never throw my way anymore."
King runs the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds and wants a chance to play early and graduate.
"Academics will be important and I'd like to get on the field early," he said. "I think if I enroll in January like I plan to, I can play as a true freshman."
