University of California Berkley’s star wide receiver Demetris Robertson has announced his upcoming transfer from the Bears, and the Dawgs are being considered one of his top choices.
The Savannah native has narrowed his top schools of choice down to Alabama, Texas, West Virginia, and Georgia. Back in 2016 while staffed at Alabama, Coach Kirby Smart was a member of the staff that recruited Robertson, who was the No. 1 wide receiver in his recruiting class when he turned down his spots at Georgia and Alabama, among others, to go 2,713 miles away to Berkley.
Robertson has cited “personal matters” as his reason for leaving the Bears in his June 21st announcement via Twitter. During his freshman year at Berkeley, Robertson racked up 767 receiving yards before suffering an injury that left him sidelined for the last 10 games of his sophomore year. No matter where Robertson chooses to play he will possibly have to be sidelined for one year unless he qualifies for an exception, due to the NCAA transfer rules.
