The three-star prospect has seen his stock rise following a strong showing at the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Classic picking up a new offer from the Crimson Tide.

King had already picked up offers from Mississippi State, Louisiana Tech, Ole Miss and Southern Miss so does the new offer from top-ranked Alabama change his mindset?

"Mississippi State is still leading," King said. "But after the (all-star) game I got an offer from Alabama. But I think it's still going to be Mississippi State because of the drive. I feel real close to their school and Alabama came in late. I really haven't talked to anybody there until now. I know more about Mississippi State."

King was only able to attend one game this past fall due to his sister's illness. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder made a visit to Starkville to watch the Bulldogs take on Georgia Tech and was able to see a familiar face on the field which helped their chances.

"I've got a former player there in Fletcher Cox," King said. "Plus they are putting in everybody even freshmen and everybody is getting time."
