Former 5-star recruit Demetris Robertson, the nation’s top receiver in the class of 2016, announced Saturday he is transferring back home to play for Georgia.
The wide reciever shared the news in a video posted on YouTube.
The 6-foot, 190-pounder made the decision to join the Bulldogs over Alabama, West Virginia and Texas.
“I am most excited about going there and bringing a championship mentality back to Georgia,” Robertson said, via 247sports.com. “I bring my focus, my determination, my hard work, and pushing guys to be the best they can be.”
Robertson, who burst onto the Pac-12 scene in 2016 with 50 catches for 767 yards and seven touchdowns as a true freshman with Cal, announced his intentions to transfer from the Golden Bears in June, citing “personal matters.”

Robertson was limited to two games last season because of injury and had only seven catches for 70 yards, but he was still named to Athlon’s preseason All-Pac-12 team for 2018.
It was not immediately known whether Robertson will be able to play immediately for the Bulldogs or will have to sit out a year.
“We are still working things out with that,” Robertson said, per 247Sports. “We will know about that in due time, with compliance.”
