Coaches are not allowed to talk to recruits off campus yet, but the University of Georgia put two pair of eyes on one of their top targets over the weekend and he noticed the guys from Athens. Rivals100 prospect Orson Charles is being pursued by the Dawgs and he saw two offensive coaches from Athens twice on Friday.

"Yeah, Coach [Mike] Bobo and Coach [John] Lilly came down on Friday and they stopped by the school and then they watched our game that night," said Charles.

"I was happy to see them, but I couldn't really talk to them, and I really did not want to think about them too much because I wanted to focus on the game and helping my teammates. Them being there really did show me that they have been thinking about me like they say they have."

Charles went out and played well in front of the Georgia coaches, but he feels he could have done better.

"We beat Lakewood 67-7 and that is all that counts, but after watching film, I think I could have played better. I caught seven or eight passes for right at 100 yards and a touchdown, but I can do better. It was my first playoff game, so I am just happy we won as a team."
