With the dead period rapidly approaching for the West Virginia University football staff, the Mountaineers are making the most out of the available time. While coaches continue to visit prospects left on the 2015 board, a Georgia running back is flying under the radar.
Colquitt County High School (Ga) running back Sihiem King had a solid senior season going over the 1,400 yard mark on the ground, but somehow hasn’t managed much attention from many programs.
One program who paid attention was West Virginia, and they extended the offer to King last month.
King, 5-8 and 175-pounds is considered an all-purpose back who can run and catch the ball out of the backfield. King can also line up in the slot and use his speed against slower defenders.
Having West Virginia as his leader for some time, the offer put the cherry on the top, and a successful visit next month could end his recruitment.
King is rated a 3-star prospect by Rivals.com and has offers from Cincinnati, Washington State, Georgia Tech and Southern Miss to name a few.
