King is an outstanding corner, and teams will likely try to avoid him.
He had a 44.7 completion rate allowed during the regular season, according to Coaches by the Numbers.
King also had an eye-popping 16-pass breakups.
Opposite King, Johnny Dixon is the projected starter.
Last season, Dixon had 23 tackles, 4.5 for loss, three sacks, ten passes defended, and two interceptions.
Dixon and King will make an outstanding tandem.
Which Penn State Football Cornerbacks Have Breakout Potential?
Behind Dixon and King, Penn State Football also has some quality depth players who could be primed for breakout seasons in Manny Diaz’s defense.
Also, the back will be Daequan Hardy, who had four pass breakups and one interception.
Collins will provide depth to the Penn State roster.
The Nittany Lions now have eight scholarships used for cornerbacks. Penn State signed three cornerbacks in the 2023 class, and Lamont Payne Jr., Zion Tracy, and Elliot Washington II were all on campus this spring.
With King and Dixon likely leaving after the season, adding young cornerbacks can only help moving forward.
Last season Penn State Football only allowed 12 passing touchdowns, finished second in pass efficiency defense, and led the nation with 85 pass breakups. They will look to duplicate this upcoming season.
It will be hard to replace a talent like Porter, but King and the other corners appear up to the task, but only time will tell for sure.
