The young man with the coolest name in college football hasn’t even graduated high school yet.
Eastern Michigan announced Wednesday that the 17th and final member of its 2014 recruiting class is a 6-foot-4 defensive lineman named Lion King.
The last NLI has been approved and the 2014 EMU recruiting class officially stands at 17. Our final new Eagle is...Lion King! #EMUSigningDay—

The Southfield, Mich., native’s actual name is Lion King Conaway, which is awesome enough in its own right, but he is officially listed as just “Lion King.”
He’s not the only interestingly named EMU recruit, either. The Eagles’ incoming freshman class also includes linebacker D’Marcus Moon, offensive lineman Dakota Tallman, tackle Ka’John Armstrong and running back Shaq Vann.
None of those come close to matching the magic of Lion King, though.
Check out some of his high school highlights in the video below, with a helmet sticker to Hustle Belt.
