WR Tavarres King Profile

6-1, 170 pound wide receiver Tavarres King visited Clemson for Junior Day on Saturday.

"It was amazing," he said. "It is always fun to come to Clemson and be treated so nicely by everyone.

"They showed us around everything. They showed us what classes would be like. They showed me what my schedule might look like. Clemson is just an amazing campus."

What was the highlight of the visit?

"I would say it was talking with the coaches. I brought my mom, stepfather, dad and stepmother with me. They all got a chance to talk to coach Bowden and get some things we needed to know. I knew I liked Clemson a lot. I just wanted to see if my folks liked it," replied King.

The star receiver had an opportunity to speak with several coaches during the visit.

"I got to speak with coach West, coach Napier and coach Swinney. I also talked with coach Bowden with my parents," said King.

When asked about his current leaders, King responded, "That would be a hard decision right now. I don't want to knock anyone. Georgia would probably still be first. I really like Georgia, but Clemson is right there with them. Then it would be Tech and Auburn."

Did the visit improve Clemson's chances of getting a commitment from the prize recruit?

"Oh yeah, it definitely helped," replied King.

The talented athlete doesn't plan any other visits in the near future.

"I am probably not going anywhere else right now. I am just going to take it easy and relax," stated King. "I will probably have my decision before the season. It will probably be right before the season," said King.
