UGA’s King enjoys day in Brown’s jersey

Georgia receiver Tavarres King isn’t sure if he will go back to his regular No. 12 this week or stick to the No. 15 he wore against Auburn to honor Marlon Brown, whose college career ended with a torn ACL.

Brown and King hung out Monday for a couple of hours at Brown’s house.

“He was pleased,” King said. “He said I looked a little small. I said, ‘Man, that (jersey) is huge. I might not be able to wear this the rest of the season.”

King wore not only the jersey number but Brown’s actual jersey, he said.

He looked good in it when he came down with a 17-yard touchdown catch just inbounds.

“It was pretty smooth, I ain’t going to lie,” King said.

The play was No. 3 on SportsCenter’s top 10 on Sunday morning.

“When it hit my hands I knew I had it,” King said, “so I just looked to the ground to see where I was and tried to get one of those suckers down in there and then I tried to get two just to make sure.”

King still puts that catch behind the 14-yard touchdown grab on fourth-down against Florida last year.

“That might be my favorite one just because of where it was and who we played,” King said.
