Savannah's Demetris Robertson already has a couple of BCS offers, despite the fact that he is just a sophomore in high school.

He has college football fans in the southeast giddy, and he’s only a sophomore in high school. The young and talented Demetris Robertson has recruiting fanatics excited as his recruiting process begins to heat up. The six-foot, 170-pound sophomore from Savannah Country Day School has been the Hornets' best player this season. Not only does Robertson have exceptional hands at wide receiver, he is also a dangerous return man and is a tackling-machine at safety. The Country Day offense heavily relies on Robertson, as he has even lined up in the backfield at tailback. 

Now that Robertson has become the catalyst for the Hornets' offense, colleges across the nation are paying attention. Robertson has already received offers from Clemson, Georgia Tech and Akron, but also has interest in other schools.

“Tennessee, Florida, Florida State and Ole Miss,” Robertson replied when asked about other schools showing him interest.

Robertson has already taken a couple of unofficial visits this season. He took an unofficial visit to Clemson for the Florida State game and was really impressed with the atmosphere in Death Valley.

“It was a great experience. A lot of the fans supported the team until the end.”

Even though Robertson plays on both sides of the ball, his primary focus is at wide receiver. And it is for good reason too. In Country Day’s 35-33 homecoming victory over Claxton County, Robertson was unstoppable, as he hauled in two key touchdown passes. He has 304 receiving yards and three touchdown catches on the year.

When asked about his receiving skills, he found both positives and room for improvement.

“I think my hands and speed are large strengths to my game,” said Robertson. “I do need to work on my route running.”

So does this young talented receiver have an early front-runner yet?

“Clemson is the definite front-runner right now.”

That is great news for fans of the orange and purple for now, but there will be plenty of schools that hope to land this great player and stand-up kid.
