Demetris Robertson, a five-star receiver and the Class of 2016’s top unsigned prospect, may still be headed to the SEC but it won’t be for defending national champion Alabama.
The Crimson Tide are out for the Savannah, Ga. native and it is final, his guardian Carlos Robertson confirmed to SEC Country’s Chris Kirschner. Robertson signed a financial aid agreement with UGA three weeks ago, which allows unlimited contact between Robertson and UGA’s staff, but the agreement does not prevent Robertson from picking another school.
The 5-foot-11 receiver out of Savannah Christian Prep took an official visit to Alabama on Feb. 26 before taking his final overall visit to UGA on March 19. It has been a long process for Robertson, as he has tried to get a higher test score in order to qualify for Stanford, which is considered to be a favorite to land him if he meets the Cardinal’s entrance requirements. California, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame are also believed to be in the mix.
Robertson is rated as the 14th-best player in the nation and No. 3 prospect in the state of Georgia.
