No.1 prospect Gabe King's move to Oregon is finalized

Defensive end Gabe King is enrolled at South Eugene (Ore.) High, attending classes, and practicing with the football team, South Eugene athletic director Dave Hancock said moments ago.

“His mother is moving out here, and Gabe will play in his first game a week from Friday,” Hancock said. “He needs nine practices with the team before he is eligible for a game.”

King, who was at Greensboro Page last year, was banned from playing at a North Carolina public school by the N.C. High School Athletic Association because the latter determined that he had signed a false residency paper last year.

His current college finalists are Oregon, which happens to be located in Eugene; California and Alabama.

With King no longer a state resident, OT Robert Crisp of Athens Drive High becomes the No.1 in-state prospect on our list.
