Utah is in strong position with Klein Oak (Spring, TX) cornerback Nygel King, who was in Salt Lake City this past weekend on an official visit. Virginia Tech, though, will get a chance to impress the 6’2”, 175-pound senior this weekend.
“Utah is a great school,” King said. “I loved everything it stood for and how it was. I felt really good about it. I’m not saying I’m going to commit there… I just had a good time. I’m waiting for this Virginia Tech visit and then we’ll see what happens.”
Virginia Tech may be the final official visit King makes before he makes his final college choice. The standout prospect, a Houston commit before he reopened his recruitment last month, is leaving open the possibility of visiting an SEC school the final weekend before National Signing Day on February 3.

I think maybe Texas State. I’m going to have in-home visits with Utah and Arkansas, and then I have my official visit at Virginia Tech this weekend,” King said, updating his recruiting schedule for this week.
“My thought process about [when he will commit] is I’ll see,” King continued. “If I feel good about the meeting with the Arkansas coaches, I might visit there the weekend of January 29 and decide a day before or on Signing Day. If not, I’ll just decide after the Virginia Tech visit.”
King estimates that he received a scholarship offer from Virginia Tech “about a month ago.” The Texas native has spoken several times with defensive backs coach Torrian Gray since the offer was extended.
“He’s a great guy,” King said of Gray. “He really is. He’s really nice. He has a good plan for me.”
What will King be looking for on this weekend’s trip to Blacksburg?
“Just the right feeling,” he answered. “I’m looking for a good feeling about being there. I’m looking to get to know the coaches and players, to see how they are.”
King seemed genuinely impressed with his visit to Utah. In fact, he told other sites that Utah is number one on his list right now. Virginia Tech has ground to make...
