UGA coach Kirby Smart isn’t just courting the No. 1 receiver in the nation. He’s also trying to sell his twin sister on coming to Athens.
Smart wished five-star recruit Demetris Robertson and his twin sister, Shanetris Robertson, a happy birthday on Twitter Wednesday night.

Smart wasn’t the only coach wishing the twins happy birthday. Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney, wide receivers coach James Coley and inside linebackers coach Glenn Schumann sent their best wishes. It’s obvious that Robertson is particularly important to Chaney, who dedicated his fourth tweet ever to the wide receiver’s big day.

Shanetris is a track athlete, and could play an important role in Demetris’ recruitment. The siblings visited UGA together and Shanetris loved the experience. During that visit, the Savannah, Ga., native signed financial aid papers.
Demetris is rated as the No. 14 player in the nation and the No. 3 player in the state, according to 247Sports.com. Smart showed he will do whatever it takes to keep the Robertson twins close to home.
