Report: TE Charles To Leave UGA For NFL

All-American tight end Orson Charles will bypass his senior year at Georgia for a shot at NFL fame and fortune, according to  Charles caught 45 balls in 2011 for 574 yards and five touchdowns.

The former high school teammate of Aaron Murray had become a security blanket for the Dawgs’ quarterback and his talents will certainly missed next season.  When it comes to blockers, the UGA run game will lose Charles, fullback Bruce Figgins and O-linemen Ben Jones, Justin Anderson and Cordy Glenn.
