Well that certainly didn’t take long.
Less than a week after it was reported that he would be leaving Maryland, Nigel King has found a landing spot. According to Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star, King has decided to transfer into the Kansas football program.
Not only that, but King has already climbed to No. 2 on the Jayhawks’ depth chart.
Because the 6-3, 210-pound King is a graduate transfer, he’s eligible to play immediately in 2014. As evidenced by his current placement on the depth chart, King will have the opportunity to earn a starting job right out of the gate, or at the least be an immediate contributor coming off the bench.
In 213, King was third on the Terps with 33 receptions and fifth in receiving yards with 450. His four receiving touchdowns were tops on the team.
