After impressing at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp this spring, Oklahoma City (Okla.) Putnam City offensive lineman Joe King has been doing that so far this summer on the camp circuit. He just returned from a very good performance at the Oklahoma summer camp.
He said he really would like Oklahoma to offer him a scholarship as it's the school he's become a big fan of since moving from Georgia.
"I didn't move to Oklahoma until I was in the 8th grade, but I came here and fell in love with them," he said. "I think I really had a good camp, and I showed them that I could be a player for them. I'm also going to OSU, Texas A&M and Texas Tech for camps. If I can I'm going to try and make it out to New Mexico."
King, who is 6-foot-6 and 297 pounds, said the main schools that have shown him interest so far include some of the schools he's camping with and some others from the area.
"OU, OSU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State and Vanderbilt are the most interested," he said. "Basically all of the Big 12 schools, except Texas. Then also New Mexico, Wyoming and Connecticut. The New Mexico coach said if I come to their camp he could almost guarantee that I'll leave with an offer."
In the mean time, King knows he's got a lot of work ahead to get better. He's also excited about his senior season.
"I want to work on being consistent and also my strength," he said. "Week one we play Choctaw. I expect to win that one. This will be like our first time in the playoffs since like my freshman year. So we're working hard to get back to the playoffs. I expect us all to play hard and do our parts."
