Standout From Savannah Checks Out Auburn

Class of 2016 football player Demetris Robertson is already rated a four-star prospect and is attracting attention on both offense and defense.

Savannah, Ga.--Although he is just wrapping up his sophomore year at Savannah Country Day School there is no doubt that talented football prospect Demetris Robertson has been discovered by college coaches.

Already ranked a four-star prospect as a wide receiver, the 17-year-old has plenty of impressive scholarship offers to play either offense or defense at the college level, including one from Auburn where he visited for the Tigers' annual spring football game.

"A-Day was a great experience," he said about his trip to check out Coach Gus Malzahn's program. "It was my first time to visit Auburn. I really liked the fans, meeting the coaches and the vibe of everything."

Robertson, who noted that he is currently 6-1, 175 pounds, said that the Tigers are on his recruiting radar. "Growing up Auburn was one of my favorites schools along with Georgia and USC," he said.

"Auburn is recruiting me as an athlete for both sides of the ball," he said. "Coach (Ellis) Johnson is recruiting me for Auburn. I like him."

Asked what he believes his best position is, Robertson said it is wide receiver. That is where he worked out in last month's Atlanta Nike Football Training Camp. Scout.com recruiting analyst Chad Simmons noted that Robertson stood out at the event.

"Robertson showed very good quickness off the line of scrimmage and he separated from coverage well across the middle or down the field," Simmons said. "He is very fluid in his routes and he showed the ability to adjust to the ball. His hands impressed, too."

Although Robertson won't be signing until 2016, he already has a good idea of what he wants in a college in addition to football. "I am looking for a place where I feel comfortable and where I can get a great education," he said.
