Georgia is officially in the running for former 5-star wide receiver Demetris Robertson.

On Friday night, Chimin’ In Media released word via Twitter that Robertson, who recently declared his intention to transfer from California, will announce his commitment next Saturday. The native of Savannah will choose between Georgia, Alabama, Texas and West Virginia.

It appears his choice already has been made. On Friday night, Robertson wrote on Twitter that his “Decision is in…Stay tuned.”

Robertson, who’s 6-foot, 175 pounds, was the No. 1 wide receiver in the Class of 2016, per the 247Sports composite rankings. Following a lengthy recruitment, he eventually joined California.

Robertson totaled 57 catches for 837 yards and 7 touchdowns in two seasons with the Golden Bears. He played in just two games last year before missing the rest of the season with a lower-body injury. He had 7 catches for 70 yards in 2017.

If Robertson joins Georgia, he would be a significant addition to the Bulldogs’ wide receiver depth.
