JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Louis King’s recruitment continues to escalate.
King, a 6-foot-8 wing who plays for Hudson (N.J.) Catholic and runs with Team Final on the Nike EYBL circuit, recently added offers from Texas Christian and Arizona State.
A bevy of big-time programs remain in pursuit of King, the No. 6-ranked small forward in 2018 according to 247Sports.com.
“Since I’ve been on the EYBL circuit, I’ve been back and forth with Kentucky, Oregon, UCLA, N.C. State, Miami,” he said Wednesday night at a Northeast Basketball Club run at Hudson Catholic.
“I might cut it down during the high school season.”
King has talked a lot with Kentucky assistant Joel Justus and said recently, “I know they get guys to The League. They had Isaiah Briscoe and Malik Monk and a lot of great players in that program. So going to that program is like a privilege.”
