ATHENS — Scott Woerner’s name is carved into a national championship trophy at the Butts-Mehre complex. Now his nephew Charlie’s name is officially in the building as well.
Charlie Woerner signed his letter-of-intent with Georgia and it has been received, the school confirmed. The receiver-tight end from Rabun County High School committed last July.
Woerner, a four-star prospect, is listed as the No. 133 overall prospect in the country, and No. 15 overall in the state of Georgia.
But given his size (6-foot-5 and 230 pounds) it’s not been made clear where exactly Woerner will play. Georgia already is stacked at tight end, with five-star Isaac Nauta already enrolled, but has a need at receiver.
So Woerner is likely to be utilized in several spots and packages by new offensive coordinator Jim Chaney.
Scott Woerner was a cornerback and punt returner on Georgia’s 1980 national championship team.
