Pittsburgh (Pa.) Gateway cornerback Justin King took an official visit to Penn State this past weekend and is now ready to decide on the school of his choice.
"Penn State was lovely," said the 6-foot-0, 183-pounder. "You can use that word too. It was a great visit."
King, who was hosted by AQ Shipley on his visit, watched the Nittany Lions fall 14-7 to Northwestern. What he saw on defense impressed him.

"The defense has been great all season," he said. "Penn State wants me as a cornerback and I could fit into that brand of defense. They are struggling right now, but not on the defensive side of the ball."
King, who is ranked as the nation's No. 1 cornerback and No. 9 overall in the country, has now visited Penn State, Michigan and Florida. He's also considering Ohio State.
"I've been to OSU a ton of times so I don't need an official there," he said. "They're in there with the other three."
Does he have a leader?
"No, they're all even right now," he said. "This week my family and I will sit down and weigh things out."
King is set to announce his decision on Nov. 15, a week from Monday. It will either be at a press conference at school or live on ESPNews, it hasn't been determined yet.
Friday night King led his team to a win with 218 yards and four scores on 22 carries. Gateway moves on to the semi-finals.
