Cal football recruiting: Demetris Robertson enjoyed his visit, favors Stanford

New, comments

Robertson, the top athlete in the nation, visited Cal for their game against Washington State and enjoyed it very much.

Demetris Robertson can pretty much choose where he wants to go to college at this point, as he is a spectacular corner who can lock down wide receivers with ease. Robertson figures to compete for playing time the minute he hits campus regardless of which school he attends. Hopefully the prospects of playing for an opportunistic defense that will offer him plenty of playing time as well as a first class education will be enough to lure him to Cal.

Fellow Georgian Russell Ude was kind enough to show Robertson around during his visit.

In Art Kaufman's second year as defensive coordinator, Cal has improved immensely on the defensive side of the ball. If Cal wants to sustain its defensive prowess, which will be vital to remaining relevant once Goff heads to the NFL, they will need to continue to bring in talented recruits on the defensive side of the ball. If Cal could land Robertson, there is a good chance he would be a three-year starter with a shot at leaving early for the NFL. Robertson would drastically improve the defensive situation at Cal, and help continue the defensive revival that has been taking place on the defensive side of the ball.

Unfortunately, it seems as if Stanford has a good shot at Robertson, as he recently said in a video interview with Southern Pig Skin that they currently stand out above the rest, along with Georgia and Alabama.

Even if Robertson passes on Cal, it is good to see them in the mix for top-tier recruits. Hopefully a strong finish to the season will allow Dykes to put together another stellar recruiting class.
