Savannah’s Demetris Robertson, who is ranked as the nation’s No. 1 “athlete” prospect from 2016, committed to Alabama on Tuesday, his brother told the AJC.

The 6-foot-1, 165-pounder is a rising junior at Savannah Country Day high school.

Robertson, who has 24 early scholarship offers, recently told Rivals that he intended to take an unofficial to UGA on Thursday and then hang out for Friday’s Dawg Night. It’s not known whether or not Robertson will still visit UGA at this time.

Robertson, who is rated as the nation’s top athlete in the 247sports composite rankings, is projected to play wide receiver or safety in college.
