Commitment Status Undecided on College Choice

King will attend LeBron James' alma mater in Akron due to a family move. The wiry VJ (Vincent Jr.) is freshman who played varsity back in Charlotte since the 7th grade under former NBA point guard Muggsy Bogues. King already holds an offer from Ohio State and now Wisconsin, plus he's had North Carolina in to see him as well.

Though he's one of seven 2016 prospects to make the cut for the U16 National Team, King is the oldest player on the roster.
