Former Cal WR Robertson transferring home to Georgia

By The Associated Press

Former California wide receiver Demetris Robertson says he is transferring to Georgia, returning to his home state.

Robertson was a five-star recruit out of Savannah, Georgia, in 2016 who chose to head west to play his college ball, picking Cal over Georgia, Notre Dame and others. Robertson had a strong freshman season with 50 catches for 767 yards and seven touchdowns, but missed all but two games last season for what was called a lower body injury that eventually needed surgery.

He announced his decision to transfer to Georgia with a YouTube video posted Saturday.

NCAA rules require Robertson to sit out this season, though after sitting out most of 2017 Georgia could make a case for a waiver to allow him immediate eligibility.
