"Travis is one of the most committed, hardest-working players we have coming in," Hobbs said. "He is a very mature player who has a chance to be a great on-the-ball defender. We're looking for him to really accelerate our transition game." "GW is inheriting both a quality person and a quality player who is a pleasure to coach," Jefferson said of King. "Travis exudes good character on and off the court. He is skilled and unselfish and he has the ability to see the plays before they develop." King led Hyde to the conference championship and the Connecticut state semifinal game as a senior. He also was voted the conference Player of the Year following his senior season by the league's coaches.
