Seton Hall added an offer for a 2019 four-star hooper from down in Georgia on Monday, as Elias King was the man to land it.
Pat Lawless, a recruiting analyst for GiveNGo, was first to report:
Elias King, a class of 2019 wing playing for A.O.T. (GA), has picked up an offer from Memphis and Seton Hall.— Pat Lawless (@PatLawless_) July 17, 2017
King currently attends the well-known Huntington Prep School in Huntington, West Virginia, the same school that former 2014 No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins attended prior to going to Kansas. King originally hails from Snellville, Georgia and is listed as the top-ranked player in West Virginia in 2019 per 247Sports. The 6-foot-7, 185-pound small forward is listed 48th among his peers at his position and is ranked 168th overall in America for 2019.
The four-star recruit has been gaining quite a bit of traction of late. He received an additional offer from Memphis, as Lawless’ tweet indicated, and also landed one from Middle Tennessee on Monday too. King also picked up offers from NC State and USC within the last month and went on unofficial visits to Auburn and Georgia, too.
It’s quite early in the game for 2019 recruits, as far as deciding where they’re going to go, but Seton Hall is definitely wise to get it going for a talented player like Elias King. King is the 19th player that they’ve offered in the class of 2019 so far, having yet to land a commit yet but that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
