Stanford commitment K. J. Costello, (6’4″ 218 lbs Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, Santa Margarita Catholic)) the national number two ranked quarterback , said Robertson is a player he would love to throw the ball to in an interview with’s Adam Gorney. “Demetris Robinson, he’s a unbelievable athlete. We’ve been talking the last couple weeks. He really loves the place (Stanford) and told me it was his dream offer.

This re-tweet from suggests Robertson is listening to Costello.

Across the continent, Rivals number one ranked quarterback recruit, Georgia commit Jacob Eason (6’5″ 207 lbs Lake Stevens, WA, Lake Stevens) responded to the recruiting call, flipping his decision to play in the Under Armour All-America game to the U.S. Army All-America Bowl.

It appears Robertson has his top three choices locked in, telling‘s Trent Smallwood, “Stanford, Georgia and Alabama are my leaders right now. All three are tied at the top.”

But the door is not closed on other suitors. Robertson continued, “Florida State, Ohio State, Auburn, LSU, Southern Cal, UCLA, Notre Dame, Penn State, Texas A&M and Florida are in the picture. I would like to see Southern Cal and some school up north, maybe Ohio State or someone like that.”

And then there is this factor. “I have a twin sister,” Robertson told’s John Garcia, Jr for,  “She’s very athletic, just as I am. She runs track, she plays basketball. We’re thinking about going to the same school together. It’s a very high chance that me and her go to the same school. She won state last year in track, in the 100 (meters), 200 and long jump, I think,” he said. “In basketball, she broke records with rebounds and steals, she’s a defensive player.”

Robertson is also adding to the recruiting drama by trying his hand on defense. At the recent FBU Atlanta camp, Robertson spent the entire afternoon working out at defensive back.

“Everybody said I have a good chance at cornerback,” Robertson told Rusty Mansell.
