Robertson (6-0, 190) committed to Cal back in May of 2016 and played for the Golden Bears during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. He announced he would continue his college football career in Athens last month.
In two seasons (14 games) for the Golden Bears, Robertson caught 57 passes for 837 yards (14.7 avg.) and seven touchdowns. He also rushed two times for 40 yards and one touchdown.
Robertson adds another weapon to a UGA offense that is stacked with young talent, which is summarized perfectly in the tweet below.
