No. The answer was simple and clear. No.
That’s what UGA commitment Charlie Woerner said when asked if he would take any official visits this fall.
He will take an official to UGA, but that will be it.
“I probably won’t take any official visits at all,” said Woerner, who was at the Corky Kell luncheon on Thursday. “That just doesn’t seem like the thing to do when you are committed. I love Georgia and I know I will go play at Georgia so why waste my time and anyone else’s time?”
Woerner committed to UGA shortly after Dawg Night in 2015. He made sure to email an Oregon coach afterward that he was close to in the recruiting process. He said he didn’t get the chance to share that news with the Alabama coaches like he’d have wanted to do.
The 6-foot-5, 240-pounder’s decision wasn’t always UGA, but Woerner said one of the big reasons why was location. He didn’t want to be that far away from home.
He also wanted to clear up a misconception about him and the receiver position. The 4-star recruit is seen as a prospect who would be adept at either spot.
“I don’t know how it ever got out that I had to play receiver,” Woerner said. “I don’t care if its receiver or tight end. I don’t mind what I play at Georgia.”
Woerner also wasn’t sure when he was going to take his official visit to UGA this fall. He will just play receiver and safety for Rabun County this fall. There will be no more bouncing around from position to position.
He has been given no indication on if he will play right away. It just wasn’t that important to him.
“There are a lot of good athletes at UGA,” Woerner said. “I haven’t been told whether I would play right away at UGA or not. I’m just really fortunate to be able to get to go play college football at UGA. That’s how I will look at all of that.”
