The prep tight end from Tampa Plant blasted a former UF assistant coach on Sunday for a poor recruiting performance.
GAINESVILLE -- UGA prospect Orson Charles is apparently not a big fan of former Florida tight ends coach John Hevesy.
Charles, a tight end from Tampa Plant, recently chose Georgia over USC and Tennessee. Florida also recruited Charles but didn't make the player's short list. Why? On Sunday night, Charles said it was all Hevesy's fault. Hevesy, now an assistant coach at Mississippi State, was the point man on the Charles deal. He recruited Charles for over a year.
[PICTURED, This guy never liked the Gators.]
"John Hevesy, when he came, that was just horrible. That turned things around," Charles told Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post. "He just wasn't a good recruiter. He wasn't really recruiting me, just calling me once a month."
Wow! Talk about classy. So you didn't like the guy. So Hevesy didn't stroke your ego enough, or whatever. So he barked at you when you broke the national championship trophy. You still don't call the guy out in public like that. Poor form.
Just to remind Orson Charles of his place in the world: You were recruited by some of the best universities in this country. At least pretend like your character was worthy of such an honor.
Just to remind everyone about the trophy incident: While visiting Florida before his senior year, Charles knocked over the Gators' 2006 national championship trophy and broke it. I bet that was an awkward moment. According to Charles, Hevesy yelled at the recruit, "Do you know that costs $35,000?"
Question: Now that Charles signed with Georgia, can Florida finally send him a bill for that trophy?
