Serrano defensive back Geordan King heads to UCLA after attending the ASU satellite camp in Upland

Phelan (Calif.) defensive back Geordan King continues to fly under the radar for most college coaches, but he hasn't gone completely unnoticed. King hit the Arizona State satellite camp three weeks ago in Upland and the Sun Devils are just one a several schools contacting him on a regular basis.

"I went out the the Arizona State Camp and spoke to their coaches afterward," said King. "Things are going really good with them.

"They said I did good, and I think I played well too. I came out and was real physical at DB. The coaches saw that and liked it. They said I was really quick in and out of my breaks. The camp was awesome and I loved it."

King exited the camp as one of its top performers, but ASU is still only hinting at a possible scholarship offer.

"I spoke to Coach Del (DelVaughn Alexander)," said King. "He just told me to keep working hard. Coach Del said that I'm one of his guys and that he likes the way I play.

"He likes my film and just wants me to get bigger and stronger."

At this point, King has garnered camp invitations from Arizona State, Colorado State, Utah, Oregon State, UCLA and USC.

"It's a fun process and I'm working hard to show that I'm getting better," said King. "I'm in the weight room four times a week, so I'm getting stronger.

"Arizona State is recruiting me pretty hard, San Jose State came out to watch me during spring ball. BYU came out, Colorado State came out and so Montana State. I've been talking to coaches at USC, UCLA and a few other schools."

Tuesday, King will be headed to UCLA for the Bruins' seven-on-seven tournament.

"I actually went to their camp instead of the USC Skills Camp the other week," said King. "I'll be up there tomorrow morning too. I talk to Coach (DeShaun) Foster a lot and he's excited to get me back up there.

"Hopefully we have a great seven-on-seven tournament tomorrow. I want to perform great and get noticed. I'm working towards an offer and they've been sending me a lot of letters."

King has a lot of interest from several schools, but still no scholarship offers.

"A lot of coaches just want to see me in person," said King. "They want to see my explosiveness. I know USC wanted me to get to their camp, and that's exactly what they wanted to see from me. They wanted to see me break on the ball and recover."

In addition to what the 5-foot-11,180-pound defensive back brings to the field in terms of explosiveness, King is also a very good student.

"I had a 3.83 GPA this last semester of my junior year," said King. "Academics are a big part of my decision. Not just academics, but business. I want to major in business and that's something I like about Arizona State. Coach Del has already talked to me about their business program and how good it is." Recommended Stories
