David King: DT 'physically demanding'

September, 19, 2012
Playing inside hasn’t been easy for David King.

The senior defensive end moved to defensive tackle for Oklahoma’s first two games this season after Casey Walker was out due to personal issues and Stacy McGee was suspended indefinitely.

King feels undersized for the position and admitted he was “knocked off the ball” a couple of times against UTEP. It’s been a major adjustment for him to move inside.

“It’s a war,” King said. “You have to worry about the guy in front of you and worry about the tackle coming down on you. IT’s the most physically demanding position on the field.”

King has played well early for OU, however. He has five tackles, two quarterback hurries and one sack this season.
