A former California Golden Bears wide receiver has elected to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. Demetris Robertson announced Saturday afternoon on Twitter that he would be transferring out to Athens to play for Kirby Smart and the reigning SEC Champions.
The decision is in. This was way harder than anyone can imagine. Thanks @chimininmedia for helping me showcase who I truly am. https://t.co/ONAh9YRbQV pic.twitter.com/8mvUEDDh9Y— Demetris Robertson (@d_rob4) July 14, 2018
No interviews will be given towards my decision, thank you guys for your respect! Go Dawgs— Demetris Robertson (@d_rob4) July 14, 2018
Robertson is originally from The Peach State, hailing from Savannah, having formerly attended Savannah Christian Prep and before that, Savannah Country Day School. He’s an elite talent, formerly a five-star recruit and was the top-ranked receiver in the Class of 2016. The former U.S. Army All-American was ranked 13th overall in the nation back in 2016 and 3rd overall in the state of Georgia, trailing only Derrick Brown and Mecole Hardman at the time.
With Cal, Robertson had a pretty solid first season back in 2016. He picked up 767 yards and seven touchdowns while racking up 50 receptions. He only played in two games in 2017, catching just seven passes for 70 yards, having been banged up for a majority of the season.
Georgia will have to wait until 2019 for Robertston to hit the field. But, the good news for the Dawgs is that they will remain absolutely loaded as they head into that season. The 2018 recruiting class is among their best efforts ever and 2019 figures to be the same. The UGA offense likely won’t skip a beat, especially with either Jake Fromm or No. 1 dual-threat QB in 2018, Justin Fields, being at the head of the group.
