Georgia getting receiver transfer from N.C. State

ATHENS - Now here's some news: The Georgia football team is adding a player in the offseason.

Receiver Charlie Hegedus, who transferred after two years at N.C. State, is enrolling at Georgia, according to Dawgs247.com. Hegedus told Dawgs247 that he had received a waiver to play right away. But he has a redshirt year available and could still use it this year.

Hegedus, listed at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, is from Lassiter and played at the same high school (Marietta) as Georgia starting quarterback Hutson Mason, though he was a couple years behind.

Two years ago Georgia was interested in Hegedus but ultimately didn't offer a scholarship, so he signed with the Wolfpack. He had a promising freshman year, starting one game and hauling in nine catches, including one touchdown. But he struggled to see the field as a sophomore, making just one catch for minus-1 yards.

Georgia is loaded at receiver this year, but needs help starting in 2015: Starters Chris Conley and Michael Bennett are seniors this year, and junior Malcolm Mitchell, who took a medical redshirt last year, could leave for the NFL if he stays healthy and has a big season. Reserve Jonathon Rumph is also a senior.
