A 6-foot-2, 209-pound point guard from New Haven, CT, King graduated from Hyde Leadership Academy in Hamden, CT, before attending prep school for a year at South Kent School in South Kent, CT. "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. He also garnered first team All-Conference and second team All-State honors as a senior by the New Haven Register. In his second year at Hyde, King became the first sophomore since Vin Baker to be named to the All-Shoreline Conference first team.
