Demetris Robertson Recruiting Update: 5-Star Signs Financial Aid Agreement With UGA

    Demetris Robertson recruiting update. The 5-star has signed a financial aid agreement with UGA, as he waits to make a college decision.

    March 21, 2016

    Five-star athlete Demetris Robertson signed a financial aid agreement with UGA.


    The majority of the recruits from the 2016 class have signed their letters of intent and are preparing for life as a college football player.

    Demetris Robertson has yet to do the former, but he has signed some other important documents – the latest being a financial aid agreement with his home-state Georgia Bulldogs, according to Radi Nabulsi of Rivals.

    Robertson took his fifth and final official visit to UGA this weekend.

    Nabulsi tweeted a picture captured, likely from Robertson’s Snapchat, of he and 5-star quarterback Jacob Eason, who enrolled early with the Bulldogs.

    It’s reasonable to assume Eason, who was one of the Bulldogs’ biggest recruiters, kept his foot on the gas in his attempt to bring another 5-star athlete to UGA. Robertson, who’s from Savannah, Ga., is the No. 3 athlete and No. 23 overall recruit in the 2016 class.

    He’s already signed an FAA with California and Georgia Tech, but it’s a non-binding document, so Robertson isn’t tied to one school. He’s free to enroll in any university in the fall, providing he’s accepted. 

    Why has he waited so long to make a decision when National Signing Day was almost two months ago? Robertson has been waiting on his SAT scores to see if he could get into Stanford.

    Aside from signing the FAA, Robertson also spent some quality time with head coach Kirby Smart on his UGA visit.
    Georgia’s 2016 class already consists of 5-star tight end Isaac Nauta and 5-star athlete Mecole Hardman Jr. Adding another 5-star in Robertson will give Eason a scary amount of talent to work with on offense.
