Orson Charles has done everything expected of him and more this fall. He burst onto the scene last spring and has lived up to all expectations at Plant High School. The Rivals100 tight end has soft hands, good speed, great strength, and off the charts athleticism.

The 6-foot-3, 225 pound athlete out of Tampa, Fla. has offers from schools across the country. He is a versatile player that can line up over the offensive tackle, he can flex out as a receiver, or he could be used as a weapon out of the backfield.

Charles creates a mismatch of some kind in the offenses favor no matter where he lines up.

Last week Plant played long time rival Hillsborough and we were there. Charles played offense and defense helping the Panthers to a 44-28 victory.

He made catches from tight end and receiver and you can get an idea of just how athletic this young man is by watching this video.
