Elias King is an elite student-athlete currently attending Shiloh High School in Snellville, Georgia. King is an emerging high major guard for the 2019 class, currently ranked the #81 player in the class of 2019 per 247Sports. The 6’7 guard enjoyed an excellent Spring/Summer campaign on the prestigious EYBL Circuit and gained national attention with a stellar performance at The Best of the Best Camp. Versatility is the name of the game with Elias where his ability to shoot the deep-ball, to see and make passes over defenses, and also handle in a pitch makes him a priority for every coach in the Southeast.


EM: Congrats on the great Spring/Summer, you turned some heads with your ability. Can you tell us how things went for AOT as a team and for you individually?

EK: My summer individually went well. I got my name bigger, got ranked in the state, and the country. I played well with and without the ball in my hands and I became a aggressive scorer this spring and summer.

EM: Can you describe your game for those that are not familiar?

EK:  I’m a 6″7 guard that can play any position on the floor and I can score from all three levels. I play good defense, I get my teammates involved, and I rebound. I can dribble and play point guard because I have a high IQ for the game.

EM: How often do you work on your game?

EK: I’m in the gym everyday and I run track everyday. I work on every aspect of my game, especially my handles because I am still growing. I am still working on my shot because I heard the lanes close up quick at the next level because everyone is long and tall.


EM: Can we talk a bit about your interests as a student, what is your favorite subject?

EK: Geometry and world history are my favorite subjects. Math is fun because I can solve the right answers and it’s only one answer to that problem it’s not 2 or 3 answers to a problem like other subjects. World history is fun because I can learn about the world outside of America.

EM: What do you plan to major in when attending college?

EK: Business because me and my family are big on life after basketball. I want to own a lot of businesses like Magic Johnson.

EM: What are your interests off the court?

EK: I like to play checkers and I enjoy hanging around my family and friends.



EM: Shifting a bit to recruiting, can you tell us which schools have offered?

EK: Florida State, VCU, Georgia Tech

EM: Which schools show interest that haven’t yet offered?

EK: Auburn, Louisville,Rutgers, Tennesse, and Georgia

EM: Any college campuses you want to get out to and visit?

EK: Auburn this Thursday, Florida state next month, and Rutgers on September 3rd.

EM: What factors are important to you and your family when making your college decision?

EK: Education, the relationship with the coach, and how I would fit with the system they play.


EM: Any personal goals on or off the court?

EK: To be the best student I can be, to have straight A’s, a high school diploma, and a college masters degree. On the court, I want to be the best on offense and defense, I want to be a great team player, and a leader on and off the court.

EM: Last, if you could give the youth some advice on how to succeed either on or off the court, what would you say?

EK: On the court, be coachable, listen to all your coaches, and do whatever the coach needs to be done. Off the court, listen to your parents and build a good relationship with your teachers.
