Jeremy Richardson is the 60th ranked wide receiver in the country according to Scout.com, and he currently claims five offers from Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, LSU and Mississippi State.
“I talked to Coach [D.J.] McCarthy a month or two ago, and he said they were offering me,” Richardson said. “He told me they wanted me to come down for a camp over the summer and check out the campus, so we’ll see if we can make it down in the next couple of months.”
Until Richardson is able to make it to Baton Rouge the Tigers will be playing catch up with everyone else to another set of Tigers.
“Auburn is my favorite right now, and everybody else is the same and a little bit behind them,” he said. “I just like the family atmosphere there and the campus. I’m not going to be making a decision anytime soon though. In fact I’ll probably wait until signing day. I want to learn more about everyone recruiting me this summer, then start narrowing things down in the fall.”
The 6-foot-4, 215 pound receiver says that learning process this summer will include camp stops at Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, and probably LSU.
“I’m really interested in LSU,” said the three-star prospect. “I get mail from them everyday, but I still don’t know too much about them. I’m hoping to get down there for a visit during the summer; I just don’t know when yet. I’ll probably try to come for a camp then stay for a day or two after to see everything. I need to learn more about the school in general and get to know the coaches better.”
Springville High School recently concluded its spring practice drills, but Richardson was unable to participate because of a toe injury. And after posting 61 catches for 1,228 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior on his way to earning ASWA 5A First Team All-State honors and being named a finalist for Class 5A Back of the Year, there won’t be too many people arguing he didn’t deserve a little more time off.
