MILTON, Ga. — Demetris Robertson played his last high school basketball game Saturday afternoon.
That leaves track season up ahead, and also figuring out where he will go to college. Carlos Robertson, his older brother and guardian, told DawgNation that the nation’s No. 1 receiver plans to visit UGA next weekend.
He also said that a Stanford trip is in the works, whether or not that is accomplished with an official or an unofficial visit. His older brother also said Robertson plans to keep taking the SAT as long as he feels like trying to make the flat 1500 score which will grant him the opportunity to take an official visit to Stanford.
He will take the SAT again on March 5. Robertson said that the Savannah Christian standout raised his score by an approximate 50 points and is now only 40 or 50 points away from reaching the score required to take an official visit to Stanford.
“He wanted to take the test over again,” Carlos Robertson said. “So he is going to keep taking the test over to see if he can bring his score up until he decides he doesn’t want to take it anymore.”
There are three visit possibilities left before he makes his decision: UGA, Alabama and Stanford. He said that an unofficial visit to Stanford might even be possible.
“He is going to take his time and make sure he sees what they have got out there and then make an informed decision,” Robertson said.
His older brother said the 5-star prospect would likely choose Alabama if his decision came down to just football, but this process will lean heavily on academics.
“I know I can ball out where ever I go,” Demetris Robertson said. “There’s a lot more to this decision than that.”
Carlos Robertson also made it clear his younger brother hopes to get the opportunity to check out Stanford before he makes his decision.
Robertson also said that the family is also consideringt signing a financial aid form with the school of his choice rather than a letter-of-intent.
He said UGA assistant coach Glenn Schumann will be a big plus for that program down the stretch.
“Coach Schuman is the guy,” Carlos Robertson said. “We’ve knownn him for awhile. He is probably the main reason why he committed to Alabama.”
