Georgia Bulldogs senior wide receiver Demetris Robertson has announced his transfer to the Auburn Tigers. The Bulldogs travel to face Robertson and the Tigers on Oct. 9.
The Savannah, Georgia, native signed with Georgia in 2018 after a pair of seasons at California. Georgia will miss Robertson and his experience this fall. Robertson is a former elite recruit out of Savannah Christian.
Robertson has seen limited playing time since coming to Athens. That was likely to continue in 2021 with incoming LSU transfer Arik Gilbert joining the wide receiver group.
Kearis Jackson, Jermaine Burton, Arian Smith and Adonai Mitchell all were projected to compete with Robertson for playing time. During his Georgia career, Robertson hauled in 43 receptions for 443 yards with three receiving touchdowns.
Demetris Robertson announced his transfer to Auburn and thanked Georgia football via his Twitter account:
We wish Demetris Robertson luck and good health with the Tigers. He is one of several Georgia players to transfer this offseason in hopes of additional playing time.
