Big Recruiting Weekend at UGA

Two of UGA's top targets will be on campus this weekend and both are offensive weapons they'd love to have in the future. That duo will be joined by a couple commitments and another preferred walk-on candidate. Get the breakdown here.

Headlining the visitor list this weekend is five-star tight end Orson Charles. The 6-foot-3, 230 pound versatile athlete has been a top target of Georgia's for some time. He was offered back in spring and he has visited numerous times since then.

Charles' close friend and former teammate Aaron Murray is already on UGA's campus as an early enrollee, so that is an advantage no other school has. Murray is not pushing Charles to Georgia, but he has given Charles a lot of info about the Dawgs, he has talked to him about why he chose Georgia, and it only helps Georgia to have Murray on their side.


Cameron Kenney
The number three rated tight end in the country is not thinking about making his decision this weekend because he has two more visits set after this one. At this time, Georgia is high on his list, but the Dawgs will have to hold off Florida, Florida State, Tennessee, and USC.

As of now, Charles plans to make his announcement the week after signing day because his visit to Southern Cal is not until February 6.

The other offensive weapon expected in Athens this weekend is Junior College wide receiver Cameron Kenney.

Kenney is a 6-foot-2, 195 pound playmaker out of Garden City Community College and he has been high on Georgia since the minute they offered back in December. The Dawgs need receivers and he is one they'd like the have in this class.

Auburn was the school he originally committed to late in the summer, but when they had a coaching change, he opened things back up. Now, Auburn is out and it is down to just Oklahoma and Georgia. He visited Norman last week and enjoyed his time there in Big 12 country, but he is from Dacula (GA) and he feels right at home in Athens.

Right now Kenney plans to wait to make his decision, but I am not ruling out a decision from him shortly after this weekend. If he gets that feeling at Georgia, then a commitment could come, but he plans to take the visit, think things over, and then decide if he wants to be a Sooner or a Bulldog.

Two commitments will be in town and they are Derrick Lott (6-4/275) and Chris Burnette (6-3/290).

Lott is being recruited to play defensive tackle and Burnette will play guard in Athens. Both are solid to UGA and both have had very successful in-home visits with Mark Richt and staff members recently.

Burnette committed to Georgia almost a year ago and has been solid since. Lott was offered midway through his senior season and committed a couple of days later. Florida tried to pull him away, but they had no success. Both are excited about their futures at Georgia.


Cody Getz
Another visitor is expected in Athens this weekend and he is a very talented athlete. Cody Getz starred at Buford High School the past few years and he is one that is visiting UGA without an official offer. Preferred walk-on is a possibility for Getz, but he is an athlete that cold help many high level programs on special teams, so don't the no offer confise you.

Getz is only about 5-foot-7 and 160 pounds, but he is a very good football player. He has an offer from Air Force, but he is giving UGA a serious look. He is very dangerous with the ball in his hands and could help the Dawgs on special teams for sure if he decided Athens was where he wanted to be in the future.

Getz will visit Florida next weekend and then sign with someone on signig day.
