King took it easy in Athens

The smooth wide receiver out of Mt. Airy (Ga.) - Habersham Central by the name of Tavarres King took the short drive over to Athens on Saturday as a spectator instead of a recruit. King has visited Athens multiple times in the recent months and he decided to take it easy today as he watched the Bulldogs first scrimmage of the spring.

"I just wanted to go over there and watch the scrimmage today, so I didn't participate in Junior Day as a recruit," King said. "I just sat back and watched practice with my dad and a few friends."

King just visited Georgia's practice about a week and a half ago and he saw a lot of the same things today, but he saw some different things too as he took a different approach.

"A lot of it was the same as a I saw before," he said. "They really compete and get after it as always. It is so awesome how they just get after it every play. I saw that same style of play when I was there before."

"Last time I was at Georgia I just watched the receivers and Coach John Eason real close, but this time I just sat back and watched everything develop. I watched the plays being called in, I watched what they would do on first and ten, short yardage situation, long yardage situations, and things like that."

"I just sat back as a spectator and watched everything. It was a lot of fun and real neat to do that."

Even though King did not take part in the Junior Day event, Coach Richt still had a little something to say to one of the Dawg's top targets of 2008.

"He came over and shook my hand and let me know that he was glad to see us and everything," said the 6-foot-1, 173-pound speedster out of North Georgia. "Coach Richt just asked how we were doing and he let us know that he was glad that we were there. It was just small talk, but it was nice."
