Elias King, the 6-foot-7 small forward from Shiloh (GA) High School, announced his commitment to Georgia on Wednesday, via SUV TV. According to 247Sports, King is ranked as the No. 55 overall player in the Class of 2019 and the No. 3 player from the state of Georgia. He joins Ashton Hagans as the second commit in the Bulldog’s 2019 class.
“It’s close to home and I feel like it’s a right fit for me and my game,” King told ZAGSBLOG. “They will let me play my game and they will let me do a lot. I’m excited for the first day of practice. I’m taking it one step at a time and loving the process.”King chose Georgia over schools such as Florida State, Georgia Tech, Seton Hall, Memphis, USC, Virginia Tech, and Miami, among others. He took an unofficial visit to Georgia earlier this year (Sept. 2).
“When choosing a school, I’m looking at how they are going to play me,” King told ZAGSBLOG last month. “Do they have my business major? Will they play me off the jump as a freshman? I’m also looking at the relationship they have with my parents.” Photo: HoopSeen
