The courtship of Orson Charles

So I was reading this story about how the University of Miami apparently wants to quit playing football forever and noticed this interesting passage:

Among the specific incidents, Shapiro or other sources say Hurtt, Hill, Stoutland, Pannunzio and Allen all delivered top-tier recruits to Shapiro’s home or luxury suite so the booster could make recruiting pitches to them. Among the players who were ushered to Shapiro while they were still in high school: Eventual Miami commitments Ray-Ray Armstrong, Dyron Dye and Olivier Vernon (prompted by Hurtt); eventual Florida commitments Andre Debose (Hurtt) and Matt Patchan (prompted by Stoutland and Pannunzio); eventual Georgia commitment Orson Charles (Pannunzio); and eventual Central Florida commitment Jeffrey Godfrey (Allen).

Yikes. While the revelations made in the article regarding the University of Miami and improper conduct towards student-athletes weren’t all that surprising, I was a little shocked to see Orson Charles mentioned. I’m thinking that nothing should come of this on our end. But damn if anything dealing with the NCAA don’t make me nervous. It’s kind of like when you’re driving somewhere and even though you’re going the speed limit, as soon as you see a cop car, you immediately have a brief moment of panic.

  1. No wrong doing alleged. But I remember AJ Green. I can see him being suspended until they get to the bottom of it and then find out something else. AJ Green anyone?
