When Pittsburgh (Pa.) Gateway cornerback Justin King surprised many and committed to Penn State over Michigan, he said that Florida had at one-time been his leader. Now that Urban Meyer is in Gainesville, will King think twice?
"No, I'm 100-percent solid to Penn State," said the 6-foot-0, 183-pounder. "I've had no second thoughts and haven't been contacted by Florida since my commitment. Even if they did call, I'd tell them I'm set on my decision."
King, ranked as the No. 9 player in the country and No. 1 cornerback, admitted that Florida was tempting at one point.
"After my official visit there they were really strong with me," he said. "If this was before Nov. 15, it would be a different story, but I made a commitment to Penn State and I'm sticking with it."
And, despite rumors that Meyer will make a run at him, King isn't even thinking about anything but January.
"I can't wait to get there and get started."
King will enroll at Penn State in January and hopes to be playing early next season.
"Hopefully on both sides of the ball," he laughed. "I think I can play either way."
