This kid can ball....

Matta is on him early...

I hope he's a Buckeye fan....

It would kill me to see him go to Indiana or Kentucky...

V.J. King, 6-foot-5 SF/SG, Akron (Ohio). St. Vincent-St. Mary (2016) - Talk about a high-level wing prospect, King looks to have the entire package. He's a good athlete, he can create off the dribble, he has a great frame and he's already a standout pull-up jump shooter. He's a pretty good passer and rebounds as well.

Ohio freshman is one to watch closely...........V.J. King burst onto the scene last year as an eighth-grader, and now the freshman is drawing offers from major programs.

Needing time

In the state of Ohio, and around the country, there are already very high hopes for freshman V.J. King.

A 6-foot-5 wing at Akron (Ohio) St. Vincent-St. Mary, King is an impressive-looking prospect who has both skill and athleticism. King can handle the ball pretty well, is an excellent jump-shooter off the dribble and has a natural way about making plays on both ends of the floor.

King has an ideal frame for a wing and is pretty good laterally. But again, he's just a freshman and our hope is that expectations for him don't get out of control even though he looks likely to be five-star prospect.

King will need to learn to attack the rim a little more and to not settle as much for deep jumpers. But, the feel for how to attack defenders and mix things up will come with time and his instincts are great.

So far, King reports scholarship offers from Ohio State, Wisconsin, UNC Greensboro, Charlotte and Iowa State and more are likely to come.

With those offers will come more expectations but hopefully people will be reasonable and remember that while talented, King will still have some growing pains.

He's still a freshman, but get used to reading an awful lot about 6-foot-5 wing V.J. King. The 2016 product from Akron (Ohio) St. Vincent St. Mary's is a very good 12- to 17-foot jump shooter with a high-level frame. He creates easily off of the dribble, is an athlete and plays both ends of the floor. King is one of the nation's premier freshmen and played to his lofty reputation.
