Former United Faith star VJ King off to hot start at LeBron James' alma mater

Vincent King Jr, better known as VJ, played on coach Muggsy Bogues' United Faith team as a eighth grader last season. He had several double figure games.

Over the summer, King, a 6-6 freshman, played on the USA Basketball U16 national team and later got a scholarship offer from Ohio State.

He's been ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation, though he's now playing at LeBron James' alma mater, St. Vincent/St. Mary's in Akron, Ohio. His family moved back to their native Ohio recently.

Here are highlights from his first game as a ninth grader in high school.

I have seen this kid develop since he was little. One of the most important reason why he has developed so well, apart from his gifts, is because of his great father. His father is an awesome man that is very involved with his son. Much respect! Great story.
