King averaged 13.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game last season as a junior at Hudson Catholic High School in Jersey City, New Jersey. He was also a member of USA Basketball’s U-19 team that won bronze at the 2017 U-19 World Cup.

King chose Oregon over Kansas, North Carolina State, Syracuse, UConn, Seton Hall, Purdue and Maryland. He joins four-star recruit Miles Norris in Oregon’s 2018 recruiting class.
