Back in the picture?

Peach County wide receiver Demarcus Robinson is arguably the best wide receiver in the state of Georgia.

The awkward part of that statement is the fact that the home state Georgia Bulldogs have shown very little interest in the talented wide out despite their need for playmakers at the position.

According to Robinson, all of that might be about to change.

The Peach County standout decided to make the trip to Athens for Dawg Night on Friday, and came away impressed with what he saw.

"I had a good time out there," said Robinson about his experience at Dawg Night. "I was slipping around out there. I don't know what was wrong, but I had a good time."

One of the highlights of his visit to Athens was the time he spent with two Georgia coaches that he has gotten to know fairly well.

"I know the Georgia coaches pretty well because they know my coaches well, and we talk from time to time on the phone," he said. "I talked with Coach (John) Lilly and Coach (Tony) Ball. Coach Lilly was joking around with me and asking if they still had a shot, and Coach Ball was telling me more about him so I can know him better."

Before he finished his conversation with the Georgia coaches, they let him know their plans for how they plan to recruit him in the future.

"They told me they plan on recruiting me harder," said Robinson. "They told me that they are going to talk to me more and stuff."

Clemson and Florida have been thought to be the favorites for the four star standout to this point, so if the Bulldogs turn up the heat, do they still have a chance?

According to Robinson, things have already changed.

"Yes, they definitely have a shot with me," said Robinson. "I would put them in my top four right now. My top four are Florida, Clemson, Georgia, and Oregon. So they definitely have a shot."

Robinson, who had 53 catches for 1,024 yards and 10 touchdowns in his junior year, is also excited about the prospect of the Bulldogs turning up the heat.

"I definitely want them to recruit me hard and show me how much they want me," said Robinson. "I want every school to do that really. I want every school to show me that they want me, that they will take care of me, and that they will be a family for me. That is what I am looking for in a school."
