Demetris Robertson is coming to UGA for another unofficial visit this week. The nation’s No. 2 athlete plans to bring his mother along, and they will no doubt get some significant attention from the UGA coaching staff.
The goal will be for the SEC program to showcase the academic side of the UGA culture — and not just all the bells and whistles of a Top 10 football program. The 4-star recruit is a unique prospect. He might even be more interested in how a degree from UGA will empower his future than anything to do with football.
Stanford continues to lead for the senior standout from Savannah Christian. He told the AJC’s DawgNation.com on Thursday what it would take for UGA to sign him
“For Georgia to get past Stanford it would take just me being comfortable at the school and them setting me up for the future.” Robertson said.
Robertston said UGA and Notre Dame have been recruiting him the hardest over the last two weeks. He did speak to Alabama coach Nick Saban earlier this week. He said that Saban told him that “he needed him” to join his program.
The nation’s No. 32 overall prospect plans to take his second official visit the following weekend, to Cal. He had previously made an official visit to Notre Dame and was really impressed with that trip.
What makes him tick? What’s he thinking about all these schools? Which side of the ball would he rather play on? You’ll find out all those answers in the video interview above plus another talent that is pretty rare in the world of the nation’s elite football prospect.
Robertson still plans to make his decision on National Signing Day next February.
