Kings, 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, is ranked by Scout.com and Rivals.com as a three-star recruit. Scout.com lists him as a running back, though he told Scout.com Michigan State plans to play him at slot receiver and sees him as a "Keshawn Martin type player."
Kings reportedly selected the Spartans over Louisville, West Virginia and Wisconsin after taking part in a MSU workout camp on Monday in East Lansing.
Kings, who scored 30 touchdowns in his junior season of high school, would give the Spartans 11 verbal commitments.
Conflicting reports are on recruiting websites with some reporting he wants to commit to the Spartans, but planned to return home and discuss it with his parents first.
If Kings joins the Spartans it would make consecutive years where the Spartans reached into Florida for receiving help. Juwan Caesar is part of the 2011 class.
