4-star DE Josh King announces top five schools

Four-star defensive end Josh King has had a number of schools reaching out to him and showing interest during the recruiting process, but he recently eliminated some schools while narrowing his list to five.

Of King’s final five, three teams play in the Big Ten — Michigan State, Michigan, Penn State.

The 6-foot-6, 250-pounder also is considering USC and Notre Dame.

King, a Hinsdale South High School standout, lives in Indiana, so it should be no surprise that most of his final five teams play in the Midwest.

Barring a commitment to Southern Cal, King will get to begin his college career close to home.
