A healthy D'Eriq King gives UH several options on offense

In addition, King offers an element of surprise that opposing defenses have to consider: If he lines up at center, he has the ability to run and throw and has “a command and presence,” Applewhite said of the position after a record-setting career at Manvel.

“It’s not just tricks and gadgets that you can use him,” Applewhite said.

I trust King to do almost anything on the football field, but think that we might not be using his talents to the fullest by playing him at center. :wink:


If he lines up at center, I have full confidence he could get the ball back to the QB; but I would be concerned with his ability to block those 300 pound DL’s.
