To say Kirby Smart is on a roll landing five-stars is an understatement given the way Georgia is recruiting at the moment but even the five-star transfers look like they’ll be ready to make an immediate impact in Athens.
According to The Athletic’s Seth Emerson, former Cal receiver Demetris Robertson has been granted a waiver by the NCAA and will be able to suit up for the Bulldogs in 2018 as one of the biggest transfer additions on the market.
Robertson originally picked the Golden Bears over the home state Dawgs coming out of high school and lived up to the hype early in Berkeley, recording 50 catches for 767 yards and seven touchdowns as a freshman. He sat most of 2017 due to an injury however and then announced he would be transferring this summer from Cal.
The addition of the 6-foot speedster reinforces a dangerous wide receiving corps for a Georgia team that returns quarterback Jake Fromm and a host of other playmakers. Terry Godwin, Mecole Hardman and Riley Ridley were all in line to start for the team this season but one of them might just be bumped in favor of Robertson if he can pick up the offense quick enough during fall camp. Add in the versatile D’Andre Swift at tailback and the team will certainly have no shortage of options offensively this season to beat teams through the air.
