Savannah Christian wide receiver Demetris Robertson was a 2015 AJC Super 11 selection.

After two previously postponed visits, five-star wide receiver Demetris Robertson is going to Athens.

The country’s No. 1 receiver in the Class of 2016 will use his fifth and final official visit to check out the University of Georgia in person March 18, someone close to Robertson told SEC Country.

Robertson was scheduled to travel to Athens this past weekend, but instead took an official visit to Alabama. The final four programs in play for the 6-foot receiver are Alabama, UGA, Notre Dame and Stanford.

He decided to postpone his decision beyond National Signing Day because he has been trying to improve his SAT score so Stanford can become a viable option.

The Savannah, Ga. native will be accompanied by his mother, brothers and sisters on his trip to UGA. Robertson’s family has previously told that they wanted to take time to assess the academic programs at each of the schools in contention.

The Bulldogs will get the final official chance to impress the nation’s top wideout, and the best player from the 2016 class who hasn’t picked a school yet.
