5-star WR Demetris Robertson to transfer to UGA

The Georgia Bulldogs picked up a big-time player on Saturday when 5-star wide receiver Demetris Robertson announced he intends to transfer from California to UGA.

Robertson (6-0, 190) committed to Cal back in May of 2016 and played for the Golden Bears during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Demtetris Robertson posted a video to his Twitter account on Saturday informing fans of his decision.

In 14 games played, Robertson caught 57 passes for 837 yards (14.7 avg.) and seven touchdowns. He also rushed two times for 40 yards and one touchdown.

Most of Robertson’s action, 12 games, came during his freshman season when he earned Freshman All-American honors. He had surgery the following season after playing only two games and received a medical redshirt.

Robertson is expected to petition the NCAA for a hardship waiver, which would give him immediate eligibility and would give him three years to play three.

Upon hearing the news, head coach Kirby Smart and the official football Twitter account of UGA football tweeted out their praise.

Date set for Georgia-Georgia Tech basketball game in 2018

A date for the Georgia at Georgia Tech basketball game this season has been set, SicEmDawgs.com has learned.

Georgia will travel to take on Georgia Tech at McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta on Saturday, Dec. 22, 2018, according to a copy of the game contract obtained from Georgia Tech via a state open records request.

The 2018-19 season will be the first for the Georgia Bulldogs under new head coach Tom Crean, who recently expressed his desire to play Georgia Tech while students are still in school.

“We need to make sure that game is happening,” Crean said. “And I mean happening in a sense that each school’s students, I hope, can be at it … We just started talking about it and I know that’s a topic of discussion at Georgia. I’ll have more answers on that down the road. I think we want to make sure that’s a game television really likes, it fits at a really good time and the home crowd’s students have a chance to be at.”

The contract for the 2018 Georgia-Georgia Tech game was signed last September, well before Tom Crean was hired. Moving forward, the annual rivalry game will likely move up on the calendar.

Georgia now has dates confirmed for six non-conference games this season: vs. Savannah State (Nov. 9), at Temple (Nov. 13), vs. Arizona State (Dec. 15), at Georgia Tech (Dec. 22), vs. UMass (Dec. 29), and vs. Texas (Jan. 26).

“Illinois State will be a formidable foe for us in the Cayman Islands Classic,” Georgia head coach Tom Crean said. “Illinois State has a veteran team returning and Coach Dan Muller does a tremendous job of getting his players prepared. Facing Illinois State will be a good early season challenge for us. These types of tournaments test you both physically and mentally, and they help prepare you for the rest of your season. We’re excited about the challenge and the opportunity.”

Lithuanian Sargiunas signs with Bulldogs

ATHENS, Ga. — Ignas Sargiunas, a 6-5, 180-pound combo guard from Kaunas, Lithuania, has signed a letter-of-intent to play basketball for the Georgia Bulldogs, Coach Tom Crean announced on Thursday Sargiunas will join the Bulldogs in the fall as a freshman.

“We are very pleased that Ignas will be joining our program,” Crean said. “As a combo guard, his versatility will help us greatly on both ends of the floor. Watching him play and develop, we have seen that he has great touch as a shooter, he has excellent ball-handling skills, and he provides solid defensive work, not to mention that he plays with poise and can be a vocal leader. His international experience will add a special dynamic to our team. He has proven that he’s a winner, and we’re happy that he has decided to be a Bulldog.”

Sargiunas has been a major contributor to Lithuanian age-group national teams over the past three years and currently plays for Zalgiris II Kaunas in Lithuania’s NKL.

Most notably, Sargiunas averaged a team-high 13.0 points for Lithuania en route to a bronze medal at the 2017 U17 World Championships in Zaragoza, Spain. He scored in double digits in five of seven outings, headlined by a team-high 15 points against the United States in the semifinal round. Sargiunas did so against a U.S. roster featuring six players entering the 2018 NBA Draft (Wendell Carter Jr., Troy Brown Jr., Jaren Jackson Jr., Kevin Knox II, Collin Sexton and Gary Trent Jr.).

Sargiunas also helped Lithuania claim a gold medal at the 2015 U16 European Championships, a silver medal at the 2016 U18 European Championships and a bronze medal at the 2017 U18 Euros.

Sargiunas has averaged double digits for Zalgiris II during each of the past two seasons competing in the NKL, Lithuania’s second division. In 2016-17, he averaged 10.0 points, 2.7 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 0.9 steals to help Zalgiris II finish 23-15 and advance to the quarterfinals of the NKL Play-Offs. This past season, he averaged 10.5 points, 2.7 assists, 2.0 boards and 0.8 steals as Zalgiris II compiled a 20-18 record and finished runners-up in the NKL Play-Offs.

Sargiunas will become the fourth freshman on the Bulldogs’ 2018-19 roster. Last fall, Georgia signed Amanze Ngumezi, a 6-9, 235-pound power forward from Johnson High School in Savannah, Ga., and JoJo Toppin, a 6-6, 180-pound small forward from Norcross High School. Earlier this spring, Tye Fagan, a 6-3, 170-pound combo guard from Upson-Lee High School in Thomaston, Ga., inked papers to join the Bulldogs.

That quartet will join a squad with three starters and 11 total letter winners back from last season. Seniors William “Turtle” Jackson and Derek Ogbiede and sophomore Rayshaun Hammonds will return, as will six additional letter winners with starting experience – seniors Mike Edwards and E’Torrion Wilridge, juniors Tyree Crump and Jordan Harris and sophomores Nicolas Claxton and Teshaun Hightower.

The 2018-19 campaign will be Georgia’s first under Crean, who has averaged 20 wins over 18 combined seasons at Marquette and Indiana. Crean’s teams have reached postseason play 13 times, including nine NCAA Tournament bids and an appearance in the 2003 Final Four.

The Georgia Bulldog Club’s 2018-19 Basketball Enhancement Fund (BEF) campaign is currently underway and runs through Aug. 1.
