Former Rutgers WR transfers to FCS program
After spending two seasons in Piscataway, former Rutgers wide receiver Stanley King has decided to commit to an FCS program.
Rivals.com tweeted out on Wednesday that King has committed to Northwestern State. The New Jersey native will be leaving his home state to join the Demons in Louisiana. The program played a spring season like most at the FCS level, finishing with a 1-5 record.
Four of Northwestern State’s five losses came by eight points or less. The Demons defeated Incarnate Word in the final game of the year 49-47.

King is a former 3-star prospect in the 2019 class. He was ranked as the No. 20 player out of New Jersey and was listed just outside the Top 100 wide receivers. King did not see any game action during his two years with the Scarlet Knights.
Out of high school, King received multiple offers at the FBS level. He picked Rutgers over Louisville, Boston College, Cincinnati, Maryland, NC State and Virginia, among others.
Northwestern State is scheduled to open the 2021 season at North Texas on Saturday, Sept. 4.
