Georgia target was blown away

One of Georgia's top remaining targets in the class of 2009 took in his first Georgia game this weekend. Orson Charles came in from out of state and spent a good amount of time in Athens on Saturday.

"We left Aaron Murray's house at 11:59pm Friday night after we beat my old school Riverview 63-6," said Charles. "We drove for about three or four hours before stopping at a hotel to get some sleep. Then we woke up Saturday morning and left for Athens. We got there pretty early."

"I was able to talk with Coach [Mark] Richt and Coach [Tony] Ball at the hotel when I got there and it was nice. Coach Richt talked to me about how bad we beat Riverview the night before and then talked about why he liked me. He told me he liked three things about me… he liked how I am an athlete, I am a good student, and that I am spiritual. It was a real nice conversation."

"After talking with them, I got to take a tour of the dorms the players live in before we ate lunch with the coaches. We then went to the stadium for the Dawg Walk and the game."

The 6-foot-3, 225 pound athlete out of Tampa (Fla.) Plant liked what he saw at Sanford Stadium. It was his first game-day experience at UGA and he was pleased.

"The atmosphere at Georgia was crazy, so crazy. I did not think it would be that crazy there, but the fans were very loud, and the atmosphere was just crazy. I was really just blown away by everything and I really enjoyed myself."
