ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia tight end Orson Charles has been linked to a former Miami booster who told Yahoo! Sports he provided impermissible benefits to dozens of Hurricane football players and other athletes.

The report says Charles was among the players improperly brought to Nevin Shapiro while still in high school so the booster could try to persuade him to attend Miami. Charles wound up signing with the Bulldogs.

Former Miami tight ends coach and special teams coordinator Joe Pannunzio set up the meeting between Charles and Shapiro, according to the report. Pannunzio is now director of football operations at Alabama.

Yahoo! Sports reported Shapiro's allegations Tuesday. He is serving a 20-year prison sentence for masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme.
