ATHENS, Ga. — ESPN analyst Cole Cubelic says Georgia WR transfer Demetris Robertson gaining eligibility is “scary” for opposing defenses.
“It makes Georgia one of the scariest teams in the country,” Cubelic told DawgNation on Friday night.

“The scary thing is him playing opposite Mecole Hardman, because now you have home run threats on both sides of the field that can take high percentage throws and turn them into explosive plays,” said Cubelic, a former Auburn player who also co-hosts the ‘3 Man Front’ radio show on WJOX-FM in Birmingham, Ala.
Robertson was a 5-star prospect coming out of Savannah Christian. His quickness and speed turned heads immediately at Cal.
Cubelic, who played when Auburn had dynamic receivers Ronnie Daniels, Tyrone Goodson and Robert Baker, expects the SEC to take note of Robertson quickly.
“”I think it’s a huge addition,” said Cubelic, who does sideline reporting for the SEC Network. “Even though Riley Ridley looked exceptional in the national championship game, you didn’t see that from him all of last year.”
Cubelic noted that elevating the level of play at receiver completes Georgia’s offense.
“Georgia is solid at tight end, they have quarterbacks, and I think they are good at tailback,” Cubelic said. “The offensive line is the best returning in the SEC, and now you have a guy that caught 50 balls in 2016, 7 for touchdowns.
“He’s a guy that can take a top off a defense and provide that deep threat.”
