King did not want to leave Athens

Athens has been home away from home for Rivals100 wide receiver Tavarres King for the last couple of years. He has been to countless Georgia home games, he has been there for camps, junior days and other UGA functions and he did not want to leave this time.

"I had a blast this weekend," King said about his visit. "My host was Israel Troupe and I had met him earlier in the year, so we were already cool."

"He talked to me about Georgia and he told me everything there was great like I already knew. Who doesn't think everything about Georgia is great? He told me it was fun, but a lot of hard work and different from high school. We had a lot of fun and he told me a lot of good stuff."

Troupe was not the only Bulldog King spent time with this weekend.

"I got a lot closer with Aron White and Logan Gray too. Rennie Curran is already like my brother, but I hung out with him a lot too."

"Aron is a character man, he is crazy. He is a lot of fun to hang out with. Logan killed me in video games - he whipped me in football. We just all hung out in the dorm and had a blast. They all made me feel like family already."

The 6-foot-1, 172-pound speedster out of Mt. Airy (Ga.) had a great time on Friday night at the GALA as well.

"I got to meet Herschel Walker and that was amazing. My parents hung out with Herschel and Frank Ros who both played on Georgia's 1980 National Championship team, so that was cool."
