Notre Dame brought team equipment truck on visit to 5-star recruit

Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly really wants Demetris Robertson to be a part of the Fighting Irish. 

How can we tell? 

He sent multiple coaches including offensive coordinator Mike Sanford to Robertson's home Thursday as well as the team's equipment truck. 

Robertson is a consensus five-star prospect from Savannah, Ga.

247Sports ranks him the No. 1 receiver in the country, and his recruitment has been a bit unpredictable so far, as detailed by IrishIllustrated.com

Notre Dame is working against the volatile nature of Robertson’s recruitment, which has included two cancelled visits to Alabama, a last-minute official scheduled to Georgia Tech and now an official set for Georgia after National Signing Day. The Irish have been on the business end of that too after Robertson cancelled two summer visits to South Bend before ultimately taking his official earlier this season.

Notre Dame could sell Robertson on the opportunity to compete for early playing time. 

The top three receivers from last season -- Will Fuller, Chris Brown and Amir Carlisle -- are all finished in South Bend, taking a combined 310 catches, 40 touchdowns and more than 2,600 yards with them.
