WR Demetris Robertson gets NCAA waiver, can play for Georgia

6:45 PM ET

Mark SchlabachESPN Senior Writer

Georgia's revamped offense received a big boost Friday when the NCAA granted California transfer Demetris Robertson a waiver to play for the Bulldogs this coming season, a school official confirmed.

Robertson, a native of Savannah, Georgia, won't have to sit out one season under normal NCAA transfer rules. He chose the Bulldogs over Alabama, Texas and West Virginia after leaving the Golden Bears after his sophomore season.

He suffered a season-ending leg injury two games into last season and announced in June that he was leaving Cal for "personal reasons." He had seven catches for 70 yards in 2017.

The 6-foot, 190-pound Robertson had 50 catches for 767 yards with seven touchdowns at Cal in 2016, setting freshman receiving records for catches and yards previously held by Keenan Allen and DeSean Jackson, respectively.

Robertson, also a member of Cal's track team, was one of the fastest players in the 2016 recruiting class and was ranked the No. 6 receiver nationally and No. 8 player overall in Georgia in the ESPN 300.

He'll join a Georgia offense that lost star tailbacks Nick Chubb and Sony Micheland leading receiver Javon Wims to the NFL. But the Bulldogs return quarterback Jake Fromm and receivers Terry Godwin, Mecole Hardman and Riley Ridley.

The Bulldogs, the defending SEC champions, are ranked No. 4 in the preseason coaches poll and open the season against FCS foe Austin Peay on Sept. 1.
