'13 TN K Jonathan King

Kicker
Knoxville, Tn.
Farragut
HT: 6'0
WT: 165
Class: 2013

I thought I would make an official recruiting thread on King since there really wasn't one. King is probably going to be the #1 kicker in the state of TN for the 2013 class & has a good chance of being the #1 kicker in the nation.

Rivals

Film FG's
Film KO's

IMO w/ Palardy & Darr not performing the way a lot of us thought they would I would not be against the coaching staff offering this kid a scholarship. We took Bullock last class as a KO specialist, he has also punted very well but I wouldn't care if we took King as stritcly a FG specialist.

We need to upgrade our kicking game, we have seen the past few seasons how much it can change a game.

I agree. If he is as good as advertised, we need him.

I don't know if UT will offer. And it's a shame because King is very good.

But UT accepted a committment from Bullock last year so I don't know about getting King this next recruiting class. That would put like 4 or 5 kickers on UT's roster, and I'm not sure if it is smart to have 5 out of 85 scholarship players being kickers.

Hope he isn't like Palardy. If not, sign him up. Can't hurt our kicking game I promise.

It would be four and it wouldn't be dumb at all. If you don't take one this year than you will be relying on a true freshman in 2014. JMO tho.

Yeah, you are right. It would just be four. Well I hope he gets a UT offer then. I guess Bullock is just being used for kickoff purposes? And Palardy & Darr have been disappointing thus far. It seems like a large number of kickers to have on roster, but we do need a kicker that can actually kick.

Do you think the numbers would work out to make taking a kicker possible. From what I have read we will be signing a relatively small class unless there is major attrition. Somewhere in the mid to upper teens? Not saying signing a kicker would be a wasted scholly, but surely the staff is going to be ultra selective this year. Is there any possibility of having him walk on for a year and then taking palardys scholly when he graduates?

This is no knock on your post so please dont take it that way, but a lot of posters on here get way to caught up on how many kids we can take each class.

Last year at this time a lot of people didn't think we could get close to taking 25 & if Santos & Peters had not flipped close to NSD we would have been almost right at 25.

It doesn't matter how many SR's we have, if Dooley wants to take 25 kids next class he will take 25. As always kids will transfer, get in trouble, & we may have a few leave early for the draft.

The best way to approach the # issue is always start at the #20 & work your way up.

You have no idea how many threads will get started or post asking what the #'s look like or how many we can take from now until NSD '13.

From what Dooley said yesterday in the AJC article a team can sign 25 every single class regardless of the 85 scholarship limit.

Jmoore is spot on. There is always attrition for any program. Numbers will not be a problem. Bama this year, case and point.

He loves Tennessee but won't end up a Vol due to the fact he wants early playing time and we just signed bullock.

Bullock would/should have no affect on King. Bullock is a KO specialist while King would be the FG specialist.

I hear that he is very good. But he will have to compete at the July kicking camp before they offer....just my guess on that
