South Carolina Gamecocks National Signing Day: Jamarcus King Commitment Profile

The number one rated JUCO corner is coming to Columbia.

Name: Jamarcus King

Position: Cornerback

Height/ Weight: 6' 2" / 180 lbs

Hometown: Eight Mile, AL (Blount High School) (Coffeyville Community College)

Ratings: 247 Sports-Four Star; Rivals-Four Star; ESPN-Four Star

Strengths: King has great size for a defensive back as he stands two inches over six feet. With his build comes strength which he uses to excel in tight coverage by getting physical with the receiver. Although he is tall, King is still quick and agile to knock down the ball in a one-on-one scenario.

Weaknesses: Even though he has a tremendous initial burst, King has difficulty reaching and maintaining his top speed. He could also improve his tackling which lacked during his time in community college.

Overall: He has the potential to be an immediate lock-down man-to-man corner with excellent size and all of the physical tools to succeed. Will need to prove that he can be a reliable tackler before he sees significant time.
