Kameron King is willing to be patient to take advantage of the opportunity he has always wanted.

The Southern Mississippi University offensive lineman is confident his time is coming with the Golden Eagles after choosing USM over the likes of such programs as North Texas, Memphis, the University of Texas San Antonio and Tulane.

After a full season in the program, Golden Eagles coaches remain high on the 6-foot-2, 280-pound lineman with the 6-foot-9 wingspan and reputation for being a “mauler” based on his physical style of play. 

King starred at Marshall High, where he was named First-Team All-District 16-5A in each of his last two seasons, with his team clinching a district title in 2016.

A member of the varsity team as a sophomore, King earned Player of the Week honors that year after turning in a performance where he had four pancake blocks and didn’t allow a sack. He went on to earn second-team All-District honors that season.
