2016 WIDE RECEIVER RECRUITS
1. DEMETRIS ROBERTSON, WR CAL – FIVE STAR
He broke out during his freshman season, catching 50 balls for 767 yards and seven touchdowns. A lower body injury derailed his sophomore season. Recently, he decided he’s going to transfer out of Cal and take his talents elsewhere. He will sit the 2018 season and right now we don’t have a clue where he’s going to transfer too.
