Top recruit Gabe King settling in--sort of--in Oregon

Defensive end Gabe King, the top prospect on our list of the 25 best college football prospects in North Carolina, is officially enrolled at South Eugene High in Oregon—for now, at least.

“He’s enrolled,” South Eugene athletic director Dave Hancock said Wednesday night. “He is in school. That’s kind of where we’re at right now.”

Oregon, though, has a residency requirement; King’s family must actually live in South Eugene’s school district. And neither parent had reached Eugene as of last Wednesday night.

“I understand his mother is on the way,” Hancock said.

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 he had signed a false residency paper last year.
