Last year, V.J. King played varsity ball as an eighth-grader at United Faith Christian Academy in North Carolina.
This year, the freshman is settling into a new home and has high hopes.
Thanks to a move from North Carolina to Ohio, King now attends Akron (Ohio) St. Vincent St. Mary.
A 6-foot-5 wing, King was outstanding over the weekend in his debut appearance with his team in a win at the Chicago Elite Classic.
"That was our first game," King told Rivals.com. "It feels good to get a win our first time out there."
Capable of freeing himself for jumpers via the dribble, King is a smooth athlete who prefers playing along the perimeter. He can get to the rim some off the dribble and should be an excellent rebounder.
Despite only being a freshman, King already enjoys some notoriety. Scouts and college coaches know about him, but he's focused on his team.
"I'm just focusing on trying to get a win," he said. "It's not about me. I want to try and win a state championship so I'm trying to get wins."
According to King, he's already gotten offers from Ohio State, Wisconsin, Iowa State, Charlotte and UNC Greensboro. More offers are likely to come.
But for now, King says that he's not thinking much about who is recruiting him or any potential favorites. He's just focusing on adjusting to high school and getting better.
"I'm just trying to add to my game," he said. "I don't really have anything specific I'm working on. I'm just trying to get better."
