Dawgs Still Going for 20

A little over two weeks after Signing Day, Georgia landed Kwame Geathers, but they want this same kind of news two weeks from today.

The University of Georgia hopes they are not done in 2009 just yet.

The no. 18 rated defensive tackle in the country signed with the Bulldogs on Friday, but UGA has another prospect out there.

Kwame Geathers chose UGA over UCF and Tennessee at Carvers Bay H.S. in Hemingway, S.C. Friday afternoon, so Georgia now has 19 in the 2009 class.

The 6-foot-5, 320 pound versatile lineman was recruited by Georgia as a defensive tackle, but he can also play offensive line. The four-star tackle is the second Geathers to be a Bulldog. His older brother Robert Geathers left Georgia as a junior after the 2003 season and is now playing with the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL.

The younger Geathers said back then that he wanted to be a Bulldog, so his dream came true today when he signed his letter of intent.

Rodney Garner was the recruiting coach involved with Geathers and it looks like Geathers will start his career playing under Garner on the defensive line.

Now Georgia turns their attention to a five-star tight end.

Orson Charles is taking his final visit this weekend and he will be on the campus of USC. The tampa (FL) athlete has it down to Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, and Southern Cal.

The 6-foot-3, 230 pound tight end out of Plant eliminated FSU a few weeks ago and he plans to trim his list again next week.

He could narrow it down to two as early as Monday, but he has mentioned next Wednesday as a possibility as well. He has set the date for his announcement as March 6.

The decision will take place at Plant High School and he will be deciding between two schools. Georgia does not have a player like Charles on their campus right now, so signing him to complete this 2009 would be big for now and the future.

He is an elite athlete and he teamed up with his former teammate and now Georgia freshman Aaron Murray to win state in Florida the week before Christmas.

Charles has had a busy schedule, but his recruiting process is shortly coming to an end.

His final visit is this weekend and on March 6, he will sign his letter of intent.

The University of Georgia got some great news this Friday and they now hope for the same in two weeks when the no. three rated tight makes his decision.
