Savannah (Ga.) Country Day athlete Demetris Robertson picked up his first BCS offer from Georgia Tech.
Robertson hopes this is the first of many offers after an impressive spring and summer on the camp circuit. He turned in an outstanding performance at the Rivals250 Underclassmen Challenge in DeSoto, Texas in July. Now his hard work is paying off.
"It feels good (getting the first offer)," stated Robertson. "I like Tech a lot. I went there on Saturday for their game and it was my third time going there."
The Yellow Jackets demolished Elon 70-0 in the one-sided affair. This weekend he is headed to Athens to check out Georgia's game against South Carolina.
Bulldogs wide receiver coach Tony Ball stopped by his school in the spring. Robertson noted, "I liked UGA as a kid. I'm going to sit down and talk with Coach Ball when I get there. I think they are close to offering."
The in-state programs appear to have the edge with the two-way star. He is interested in Alabama and Florida State as well.
Although it's early Robertson does have a school standing out. He said, "Right now Georgia Tech is my leader since it's my first offer."
Last season, Robertson only played in four games suffering a leg injury on the first play of his fifth game. He still managed to catch 20 passes for 296 yards and three scores while adding two kick-off return touchdowns and one punt return touchdown. On defense he tallied 41 tackles.
