Former Habersham Central star Tavarres King isn't taking the same path as many of his former teammates and a countless number of other high school football stars.
While many of those other players are starting the final semester of their senior years in high school and still taking visits in the hopes of deciding on a potential college, King is already a few steps ahead.
The four-star wide receiver, who selected Georgia over Clemson last May, is now set to start classes as an early enrollee for the Bulldogs.
And now that he is finally there, what does he think about Athens from a soon-to-be student in Athens?
"It's a great place, great campus, great people, great tradition, and great education," an excited King said. "Hey ... it's just great to be a Georgia Bulldog!"
The 6-foot-1 and 170-pound offensive player is rooming with fellow early enrollees and Georgia natives Richard Samuel and Dontavius Jackson.
In a previous interview, King said that he was eager to get to UGA early so that he can help make an impact as soon as possible.
"I just want to be a difference maker," King told DawgPost.com's Dean Legge in early December. "I feel like I can come in and play. I want to contribute to the team. I just want to play. I want to do something great. I think getting there early will give me an advantage and classes. It will help on the field, too. I have a lot of weight to gain still."
