Orson Charles Sees Opportunity At Michigan

The stud tight end from the Sunshine State currently holds 29 offers. Is Michigan one of them? What are his thoughts on the Wolverines?

"I think my game is alright, but I have 29 offers," stated Orson Charles (6-3, 215, 4.5), the modest tight end from Plant High School in Tampa, Florida.

"Michigan has offered me at defensive end, but they said I could come in and compete on both sides of the ball. I prefer to play tight end. But I like the coaching staff at Michigan and just the change (in staffs). When the change came I saw an opportunity at Michigan."

So in seeing that new opportunity, will Charles make the trek to Ann Arbor for an official or unofficial?

"I'm trying to make it up for an unofficial. I just got to talk to the coaches and see when the best time is. But I'm very open still. Location isn't a factor at all for me."

But the summer has been busy for Scout's #4 tight end and #115 overall prospect.

"We just came back from the USF swing and shoot and we won the whole thing there. I think I'm supposed to go to Elite 11 with (his Tampa Plant QB teammate) Aaron Murray. And after that I'm going to talk to coaches and see what's going on."

But, what is completely clear for the talented Plant Senior High young man, is what he's looking for in a school.

"I want to look at academics because I want to major in engineering. And the team. I want to see how the freshman and sophomore QB's and I get along," stated Charles.

"But I'm just trying to talk to my mom and enjoy it (the recruiting process). Then when the season starts I'll start using my officials. I don't want to commit and then decommit later, it's too much hassle."
