UGA added a potential game-changer to its football roster for the upcoming football season.
Former 5-star receiver Demetris Robertson had his waiver request granted by the NCAA, a UGA spokesperson confirmed on Friday evening.
Robertson transferred from Cal after playing two seasons at the Pac-12 school, but he had to sit out this season under NCAA transfer rules. However, Robertson, who began practicing with UGA last week, put in a waiver request to play for UGA immediately.
Robertson is a huge boost for a UGA offense that lost its top receiver (Javon Wims) to the NFL.
