The best perimeter player in the class of 2016 already has the leg up on many of his fellow classmates, having played two years of varsity basketball before ever enrolling in high school at United Faith in North Carolina. Now at St. Vincent-St. Mary in Akron, Ohio after a family relocation, it will be hard to imagine the LeBron James comparisons not being thrown around even though the two have completely different styles of play. A lights out shooter, King has a silky smooth pull-up off the dribble to go along with deep range. He is also a solid athlete for a player who doesn’t look like he’s done growing based on his appearance and length. Basketball also runs deep in his blood, with his father Vincent Sr. playing nearly a decade professionally overseas.
