Orson Charles- TE- (6-foot-3, 230 lbs)
One of the highest rated unsigned prospect in the country after National Signing Day. Charles had narrowed his choices down to Georgia, Tennessee,Florida, and USC, before picking the University of Georgia on March 6th,2009. This kid has all the things you want in a TE/WR.
He has size, speed, quickness, and strength. Charles has good hands and displays the ability to consistently catch the ball away from his body. He runs adequate routes, and displays good concentration to catch the ball in a crowd.
He is also the former teammate of UGA recruit, Aaron Murray.
There were rumors that Georgia would maybe utilize Orson's talent in more of a non-traditional tight end position, more like Jermaine Gresham of Oklahoma. But according to AJC and Rivals.com, Georgia Coach Mark Richt made it clear that Charles would be playing in a Pro-Style Offense that uses the Tight End on the line and not split off to the wide side.
With the signing of Orson Charles, Georgia finished its 2009 Class with 20 Commitments, and the # 8th Ranked Signing Class.
