It could be stated that 5-star WR Demetris Robertson was the biggest recruiting miss of the Kirby Smart era at Georgia.
Robertson, the nation’s No. 1 receiver in 2016 on the 247Sports Composite, opted to go his own way at Cal instead of joining Smart at Georgia in May of 2016. That was despite a deep-rooted relationship with Smart and UGA assistant Glenn Schumann during their time at Alabama.
Well, that can no longer be described as a miss. The Bulldogs were the choice for the prodigal receiver from Savannah to come back to his home state this time…
Robertson, the nation’s No. 13 overall prospect in 2016, now gives the Bulldogs 17 players on their roster that held the coveted 5-star rating from the 247Sports composite.
