5-star WR Demetris Robertson to transfer to UGA
The Georgia Bulldogs picked up a big-time player on Saturday when 5-star wide receiver Demetris Robertson announced he intends to transfer from California to UGA.
Robertson (6-0, 190) committed to Cal back in May of 2016 and played for the Golden Bears during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
Demtetris Robertson posted a video to his Twitter account on Saturday informing fans of his decision.

After a little over three minutes, Robertson states “I’m staying home. Go Dawgs!”
In 14 games played, Robertson caught 57 passes for 837 yards (14.7 avg.) and seven touchdowns. He also rushed two times for 40 yards and one touchdown.
Most of Robertson’s action, 12 games, came during his freshman season when he earned Freshman All-American honors. He had surgery the following season after playing only two games and received a medical redshirt.
Robertson is expected to petition the NCAA for a hardship waiver, which would give him immediate eligibility and would give him three years to play three.
Upon hearing the news, head coach Kirby Smart and the official football Twitter account of UGA football tweeted out their praise.
