Marshall’s Kameron King Offered By Northwestern State
Marshall 2018 offensive lineman Kameron King added his 11th Division I scholarship offer on Monday,
King (6-2, 275) reported via Twitter an offer from Northwestern State.
The Mavericks' lineman, in addition to Northwestern State, holds FBS offers from Louisiana-Monroe, North Texas, and Tulane, and FCS opportunities from Abilene Christian, Lamar, McNeese State, Missouri State, Sam Houston State, and Stephen F. Austin.
The Mavs’ standout was one of seven offensive linemen competing at the fifth annual ETSN Combine at APEC in Tyler on May 21. He tied for the longest broad jump at his position with a leap of 102 inches and acquitted himself well on the field during one-on-one drills against pass rushers.
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.
Northwestern State, located in Natchitoches, La., competes in the Southland Conference. The Demons are coached by Jay Thomas, who is 17-24 in his four seasons in charge. NSU was 1-10 in 2016.
King will first become eligible to sign with any program that offers him in December.
