According to Bernard King's mother, Keady has scheduled an in-home visit in September with the Louisianna star. The 6'4 lefty has been playing since the 5th grade, and could reach 6'6 before he stops growing. His father is 6'9 and his mother is 6'2. King averaged killer numbers last year in Louisianna's Class B (the middle of three classes) with 30.2 points, 8 boards and 7 assists per game. He shoots 60% from the floor and can run the 1, or create his own shot at the 2-guard. According to Gibsland-Coleman head coach Oscar Williams, there isn't much King has to improve upon. "Someone asked me that the other day," replied Williams after being asked if his star had any areas in need of improvement. "He's a complete player. He's a heck of a passer, but sometimes just needs to shoot the ball. And sometimes I think he is a little too aggressive." Aggressive in the classroom also, as King carries a 3.85 GPA and has already scored the necessary ACT numbers to qualify. The AAU All-American will get a visit from Purdue, but is also considering a host of other schools including Texas A&M, Seton Hall, Georgia State, LSU and Marquette.
