Demetris Robertson, the 14th-best prospect in the Class of 2016, still has not signed his letter of intent. But the five-star wide receiver out of Savannah (Ga.) Christian Prep has reportedly made a move that could provide more clarity on where he’s heading.
Robertson inked a financial aid agreement with California, his older brother and guardian Carlos Robertson confirmed to DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell. Under NCAA rules, that allows the younger Robertson to have unrestricted contact with Cal’s coaches and support staff, and it would also mean that the school would have to honor his scholarship offer if he ultimately chooses the Golden Bears. However, the 6-foot, 175-pound recruit is not bound by the agreement and could technically sign financial aid papers with any school that agrees to it.
Robertson, the nation’s No. 1 wide receiver for 2016 and the No. 3 overall prospect in Georgia, officially visited Alabama in late February and was also expected to pay UGA a visit soon. But according to Rivals.com regional analyst Woody Wommack, who first reported the story, Georgia Tech may actually be the next-most-likely school to receive signed financial aid papers from him.
Sentell has previously reported that a decision for Robertson could come in mid-March, although no deadline has been explicitly set.
