Southern Cal WR Brice Butler sends message to Norcross teammate

8:47 p.m. Monday, October 27, 2008

Southern Cal wide receiver Brice Butler recently sent Norcross quarterback Charles King a text message that simply read: “October 24, 2009 in LA.” That, of course, is the date for next year’s USC-Oregon State game. Oregon State, which is the only team to defeat USC this year, is recruiting King, who played last year at Norcross with Butler. Ironically, King was scheduled to make his official visit to Oregon State last month for the upset of then-No. 1 USC, but decided to postpone it at the last minute. King said he spoke with Oregon State recruiting coordinator Gary Beck to reschedule the trip for Nov. 15. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound King has offers from Nevada, Idaho and Western Carolina. He has been invited on official visits to Oregon State, Fresno State and Arizona State, which all appear close to offering

Norcross QB King postpones trip to Oregon State

4:01 p.m. Thursday, October 23, 2008

Norcross quarterback Charles King, cousin of former NFL quarterback Shaun King, has postponed his official visit to Oregon State. King was scheduled to fly out on Thursday morning, watch Oregon State play No. 1 Southern Cal later that evening, and then return to Norcross on Friday morning. However, King said his high school coach asked if he could reschedule the trip, especially with Norcross coming off last week’s loss to North Gwinnett. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound King said he is leaning to the Beavers, which have hinted at an offer but want to spend time with him before making a final decision. “They want to do the eye test, and if everything works out, they said they’d offer,” King said. King has offers from Idaho, Nevado-Reno and Western Carolina, along with an official visit scheduled to Arizona State next month. King prefers West Coast schools because he moved to Georgia nearly four years ago from California. His father, who played college football at Fresno State, had a job transfer. “I get a lot of ribbing about how good the SEC or ACC is, but growing up in California I’ve always dreamed about competing in the PAC 10,” King said
