King headed to Concordia over USC

Former Villanova and Duke forward Taylor King will not end up
attending USC this fall and is instead headed to NAIA school
Concordia.

King had told FOXSports.com earlier this month that he would be
transferring to the Pac-10 school, where he’d have to sit out this
season and would have one year of eligibility left.

“It didn’t end up working out,” King told FOXSports.com on
Wednesday.

King originally chose to attend USC over Azusa Pacific and
Concordia, two NAIA schools in California where he’d be able to
play two seasons.

But King would have had to pay his own way this season at USC,
and that would have cost him roughly $50,000.

The 6-foot-6, 230-pound native of Huntington Beach, Calif.,
averaged 7.4 points and 5.3 rebounds in 32 games last season for
Villanova, which reached the second round of the NCAA
tournament.
