Georgia Picks Up WR Transfer Charlie Hegedus

You may have missed this under all the Tray Matthews talk – Charlie Hegedus announced he has transferred from NC State and will be a WR walk-on for the Dawgs. Here is more from – 

A former standout at Lassiter (Ga.) High School, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Hegedus was a star on the combine circuit. He had interest from quite a few SEC programs — including UGA — but the SEC offers weren’t there, which puzzled many analysts at the time.

Hegedus said he delayed signing two years ago by 90 minutes to see if there was a late offer coming from Georgia.

“My heart has always been at Georgia,” he said. “I wanted a chance to come back home and play for the home state and to play in this offense they run.

I followed Charlie’s recruitment closely (I am a LHS Alumn you know :)) and I was surprised he didn’t get offered from UGA in 2012. The kid has great hands, speed and can contribute right away for the bulldogs.

Barton Simmons, Director of Scouting for 247Sports: “Coming out of high school, I thought Charlie Hegedus was one of the real steals of the entire class of 2012. The kid had great ball skills, good size and he could really run. That was the piece that a lot of people didn’t realize. He can go. With the addition of Hegedus to the Georgia roster, they’re getting an instant contributor and a blue-collar type of kid. He’ll catch balls in traffic. He can make plays on the outside. He’s just a solid, complete wide receiver.”

Sounds like we have another Michael Bennett. This works out great for the Dawgs since we’ll get a capable reciever that will be here for 2 seasons (We lose a ton of WR’s after this season). Also with all the injuries we had last year this doesn’t hurt a bit.
