King has not yet confirmed the commitment on Twitter. He is the second top-60 player from the 2019 class to commit to the Bulldogs this week, joining 5-star point guard Ashton Hagans.
He chose Georgia over offers from Auburn, Florida State, Memphis and several other top programs. The forward is listed at 6-foot-7, 185 pounds and attends Snellville High School in Georgia.
For the moment, Georgia has the nation’s No. 1 class in 2019.
On the court, the Bulldogs have two straight wins after losing to UMass and only beating Winthrop by five points. Next up, UGA will travel to No. 16 Kentucky on New Year’s Eve.
