Summary:

V.J. King is an athletic swingman that can shoot the basketball.  He shot the three-ball well as a freshman, but he has since been struggling to meet expectations since, as he may settle for a lot of questionable shots that may hurt his shooting percentages.  He will need to improve his overall game, and he should stay in school to hone his skills.
