"And a lot more is going to be put in," he said. "It's been frustrating. It's been fun. I'm not going to say scared, but I'm nervous."
King isn't yet concerned with playing time this year, he said.
"I'm just glad I'm in the uniform wearing a G, and whoever goes, goes," he said. "Every freshman that came here wants to play, but if the coaches don't think I'm ready, I'm not ready. I'm OK with it."
King impressed Richt on Monday.
"He's a very good-looking guy when he knows what to do," Richt said
PRACTICE REPORT: Georgia practiced for two hours Monday afternoon and will have another afternoon workout today. The Bulldogs begin two-a-days and full contact on Thursday.
"We handled the heat about 10 times better than the first day," Richt said. "I thought we gave in (Saturday). You could tell they felt it, but they sucked it up and they worked."
Sophomore cornerback Bryan Evans didn't practice after suffering a hamstring injury Sunday, but he watched practice and walked without a limp.
"He felt better than he thought he would today, but that doesn't mean he'll be practicing anytime soon," Richt said. "It still may be a while. Hamstrings are the most unpredictable injuries. We'll be cautious with it."
Senior cornerback Thomas Flowers was in a green, no-contact jersey due to a minor shoulder injury.
