Georgia Southern vs. Georgia: King continues to exude quiet greatness

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

Tavarres King doesn't get a ton of recognition, but he's certainly one of the best receivers in Georgia history.

Very few players can put up the kind of numbers that wide receiver Tavarres King has over his career with the Georgia Bulldogs.

Even fewer can do it so quietly, without much notoriety from the media and more of a subtle thanks from the fans. King for his part isn't bothered in the slightest, as he continues to do his job week in and week out for one of the best teams in the country, according to redandblack.com.

"It feels pretty neat to be up there with some of the great receivers that have played here like AJ, Brice Hunter, guys like that," King said. "It's very cool to be a part of that."

King came in looking up to another Georgia alum in Mohamed Massaquoi, who has gone on to have a nice career in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns. Per redandblack.com:

"That's a guy I looked up to when I got here. He's a guy who took me under his wing and showed me what it was like to be a great receiver," King said. "I followed his every move, did everything he did. He taught me how to work. He taught me how to be a productive guy in this offense. I can't thank him enough."

In his time at Georgia, King has amassed some gaudy numbers. The senior has racked up over 2.220 receiving yards to go along with 19 touchdowns. King ranks sixth and fourth in those categories, respectively, in school history.

King also holds the record for most receiving yards (202) in one game, earning that distinction against the Michigan State Spartans in the 2012 Outback Bowl.
