Charles Fashaw is a tight end prospect from south Florida. Fashaw, from Opa Locka (Fla.) Northwestern High School, is coming off a broken leg last year. This injury has set his recruitment back but he's ready to show the college football world that he's ready for the next level.
"I broke my leg on the first day of school at practice last fall," Fashaw said. "A linebacker fell on my leg. It happened when I was blocking. They put a rod and two screws in my leg. It was heartbreaking not playing last season. Now, I am ready to kill it and very anxious. They are talking about us playing Pahokee in a jamboree this fall. That would be at the end of August and my first game back. It's not official but I am hoping that works out."
Fashaw, 6-5 and 210 pounds, is a versatile tight end prospect when healthy. He can do it all from the tight end position.

"I am a different tight end. I can block and run well with the ball. I can make you miss or run you over. I can flexed or line up against the tackle. I am also a good receiver."
So far Fashaw has scholarship offers from Boston College and Central Florida. More should be on the way this fall with a big senior season.
"Everyone says they want to see me back on the field and see how the injury has progressed. I really feel good. I went to the Nike camp at Miami. I did well and it felt good. It was the first time I played. I have too watch it because there's too much at stake."
Fashaw said that schools like Florida, Tennessee, FSU, Miami, Alabama, LSU, and Purdue will be watching him closely."

"Miami, of course, is a prestigious school. They have history and it's home.
