King visits Athens for scrimmage

ATHENS – One of the top prospects in Georgia, and one the Bulldogs are very interested in, was on campus Saturday.

But Habersham Central's Tavarres King took in Georgia's first scrimmage of the spring, but not officially as a recruit.

"I told them that I was coming down just to watch. I didn't really participate as a recruit," he said.

Still, King enjoyed the afternoon in Athens.

"It was awesome," King said. "I shared a few laughs with Coach Richt. I just hung out a lot. I went to watch the practice. I like the way the team got after it. I like the way the coaches jump on them and correct things. The coaches are class acts."

Still, many observers thought King was likely to commit this weekend, which did not happen. He said he wanted to make certain about Georgia before he committed to them and that there was one hang up.

"One reason I have not committed to Georgia is that they don't have what I want to major in," he said. "I just want to make sure that Georgia is the right school for me. I need to see that it's the right place for me."

Still soon-to-be-new Dawg Rennie Curran wants King in Athens with him, and he made that clear to King.

"I talked with Rennie a little," King said with a laugh. "He does a good job of recruiting for Georgia."

Georgia is still in the lead for King, but Clemson and many other schools are all still trying to get him.
