Last year, wide receiver Demarcus Robinson (Fort Valley, Ga./Peach County) was tops among all juniors in Georgia, with 1,024 receiving yards, good for fifth overall in the state. Robinson had 10 receiving touchdowns, as well as five on the ground. Schools including Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame and Oklahoma have offered the 6-foot-2, 200-pound ESPNU 150 prospect, and on Saturday, Robinson was in Athens for the first time since the fall, when he visited for the South Carolina game in September.
“It went good," Robinson said of his latest trip. “I was able to watch some of the practice, talk to some of the players and see some of the campus. There were about 40 other prospects in town, and we got to watch some of the highlights on the big screen on the stadium.”
Robinson said the visit helped Georgia in his eyes, and his family also enjoyed themselves.
“Mom and little sister came and they both liked it a lot,” Robinson said. “My favorite part of the visit was how excited and enthusiastic the players were. I love how intense the practice was. They were fighting after every drill. I loved it, and it made me want to go out there and practice with them.”
While Robinson had to leave early because his mother had an obligation back home, he did get to spend some time with another talented athlete he met while running track in the last two years.
“I spoke to Justin Scott-Wesley and he talked about the routes they run, and how good it is to be at Georgia,” Robinson said.
At the moment, two out-of-state programs seem to be showing the most interest in Robinson.
“Florida and South Carolina are recruiting me the hardest right now,” Robinson said. “Georgia is not really recruiting me as hard as some of the other schools right now.”
Next week another college visit is on tap, this time to South Bend to check out Notre Dame. Robinson says he is in no rush to make a commitment.
“I am still kind of taking things slow with my recruitment,” Robinson said.
