Kirby: Recruiting 5-Star "As Hard as We Can"

ATHENS - Kirby Smart is eager for Demetris Robertson to play in Silver Britches.

And he’s ok with still recruiting the 5-star prospect from Savannah. 

“Every chance we get we are recruiting him as hard as we can,” Smart said Tuesday night. 

Georgia is in a multi-school fight to get Robertson to enroll. The senior can no longer sign a letter of intent, but has signed financial aid agreements with serval schools - including UGA. Smart said he’s trying to make sure Robertson knows what he could do at Georgia. 

“You sell your product. You sell your education,” Smart said. “We have talked to him a ton about stretching the field vertically.”

Smart has said the Bulldogs have struggled at receiver this spring. He has cited their up-and-down nature many times in post-practice meetings with the press. The most challenging part for UGA and Smart recruiting Robertson, however, is that the recruiting cycle has moved on, and everyone is shifting focus to the class of 2017. 

“I think the most difficult part is that we are now recruiting 2017 kids,” he said.
