A Receiver That Likes To Block? Meet Charlie.

Wide receiver Charlie Hegedus (6-2, 185 pounds from Lassiter High School in Marietta, Ga.) is receiving several offers, but is still keeping his eye on Georgia Tech.

After attending a GT Football practice during the 2010 season, Charlie Hegedus realized that he could fit in quite well on the Atlanta campus, not far from where he has grown up. Coming from a nearby Atlanta suburb, he has enjoyed the short trips to Georgia Tech during the visits.

"They're definitely top-of-the-line," Hegedus said. "I could definitely see myself playing there."

And while he has been receiving letters from a slew of schools, Hegedus has been hearing from GT offensive line coach Mike Sewak regularly, and the coach would like to see the 2012 recruit make a visit to Georgia Tech this weekend.

With UGA Junior Day and a possible visit to Wake Forest as well scheduled for this weekend, Hegedus said that he can't make any promises for a visit to Georgia Tech, too. But he Will Do his best to visit all three, and he will definitely be back in downtown Atlanta again soon.

Hegedus has learned about the triple option that Georgia Tech runs on offense, and he is not intimidated by a new offense at all. In fact, he understands that there is more to the receiver position than catching the ball, and he thinks his skills will translate well.

"Hey, I like to block too – so it's not a problem with me," Hegedus said.

With an interest in a group of schools that is still growing (Illinois and Tennessee being the latest to reach out to him), Hegedus will spend his senior year weighing the options and working on his agility in the passing game. But he didn't mince words when he said that he has one goal before he heads off to college: to win state as a Lassiter Trojan.
