King couldn't stop praising UGA after visit

One of the top wide receivers in the South is Georgia's Tavarres King. King not only stands out on the football field, but he stands out in the classroom as well. The combination of academics and athletics have helped him land five offers early on his first was from the University of Georgia. King visited the Bulldogs on Saturday and he left the classic city praising the University of Georgia.

"It was awesome, real awesome," said King about his visit to Georgia. "I have been to Georgia a lot, so I knew it would be great, but it was even better than I thought it would be this time."

This 6-foot-1, 165-pound receiver that runs the forty-yard dash in 4.4-seconds spent a lot of time with the Georgia receiver's coach.

"I spent more time with Coach John Eason than I did anybody else," he said. "He just makes me feel very comfortable at Georgia. I sat down to eat lunch with him and Mohamed Massaquoi, Kris Durham, and Sean Bailey walked up and we had a great time."

"Coach Eason just cut up jokes with them about me coming to Georgia and he just makes things fun. All the guys were great and we talked about a lot of different stuff."

King's time with the Georgia coaches was very valuable to him and his father.

"My dad had some questions written down to ask Georgia during the visit and they answered most of them before he could even ask them," King said. "Coach Eason and Coach John Jancek answered all the questions and gave him all the answers. It was great. The coaches at Georgia are great."
