Demetris Robertson, the nation’s No. 2 athlete, still plans an unofficial visit to UGA this week for the Missouri game.
His mother and sister are planning to tag along for a crucial visit that should help to determine whether or not UGA remains high on his list. The 4-star prospect from Savannah Christian knows the schools he is considering will facilitate his football goals. That part isn’t hard to decipher.
He told the AJC’s DawgNation.com last month that he’d rather own a million-dollar-a-year-business than play 10 years in the NFL. His current favorite, Stanford, allows him the academic opportunity to do that.
That’s why he’s not fazed by UGA’s back-to-back losses. He said on Sunday that it wouldn’t matter if the Bulldogs went 8-4 this year or if they won the SEC.
Robinson said, to be honest, that he really hasn’t thought too much about UGA’s loss to Tennessee. He’s more focused on how UGA can prepare him as a student-athlete for life after football.
“Them hitting a little rough patch won’t change that,” he said.
He recently took his second official visit to Cal. He was very impressed.
“I had a great time, but more importantly it had everything I needed as a student-athlete,” Robertson told DawgNation.com. “Which made the trip even more impressive.”
He compared the Cal visit to his official visit to Notre Dame earlier this year.
“They both had their good points,” he said. “They are both great places.”
Robertson still lists Stanford, UGA, Alabama, Cal, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame among his top schools.
