    Updated:

    California transfer Demetris Robertson is eligible to play this season for Georgia after being granted a waiver by the NCAA.

    Georgia athletic spokesman Claude Felton confirmed Friday that the NCAA OK'd the schools request for a waiver. NCAA rules usually require transfers to sit out a season unless they have graduate from their previous school.

    The former five-star recruit from Savannah, Georgia, caught 50 passes for 767 yards and seven touchdowns as freshman at Cal. He played oly two games last season before having season-ending surgery on what was called a lower-body injury by the school.

    Georgia, coming off a Southeastern Conference championship and appearance in the College Football Playoff championship game, is the favorite in the SEC East again.
