Marshall’s Kameron King Offered By Abilene Christian
Marshall 2018 offensive lineman Kameron King is rapidly becoming one of the most sought-after offensive line prospects in all of East Texas.
On Wednesday, King (6-3, 270) picked up his sixth Division I scholarship offer from Abilene Christian, he reported on Twitter.
King's others offers have come from Louisiana-Monroe, North Texas, and Tulane on the FBS level and Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston State from the FCS ranks. All six opportunities have come in the last week for King.
Last season, King helped Marshall’s offense to 3,939 total yards in an 11-game campaign. As a sophomore, he was part of an offense that put up 5,401 total yards and went to the third round in the Class 5A Division I state playoffs.
Expectations for Marshall have jumped a bit since the end of 2016. Former SMU running backs coach Claude Mathis left his collegiate job for the position in deep East Texas.
Mathis was a highly-regarded high school coach before taking the job at SMU. He owned a 74-18 record at DeSoto through seven seasons and reached the state semifinal level in 2012 and 2013 at what is now known as the Class 6A Division I level.
Abilene Christian competes in the Southland Conference, along with SFA and Sam Houston. The Wildcats will be under new leadership in 2017 with the arrival of head coach Adam Dorrel, who won three Division II national championships with Northwest Missouri State from 2011-16.
Last season, ACU was 2-9 overall and 2-7 in league play.
King becomes eligible to sign with any program that offers him in December.
