He also tied the Iowa single- season record and ranked second in the nation with eight interceptions. He started all 14 games at cornerback for the Hawkeyes in 2015. King will return to Iowa for his senior season in 2016.

BC Clark Jewelers and Rolex joined together to present the Jim Thorpe Association a Stainless Steel and Platinum Yacht-Master watch valued at $12,350 to be given to King next year after his senior season with Iowa.
