40 time: 5.1
From: Moreno Valley, California
High School: Canyon Springs
Richard looked very good in the one-on-one drills as he simply over-powered many of his opponents. He teams with Rodney Picou to form a daunting offensive line at Canyon Springs. The two are best friends and have grown up together. That said, they plan on attending many of the same summer camps and like a lot of the same schools.
His Father also mentioned that Colorado is a school he is looking at, along with Utah. He went on to say that in the past month and a half they are receiving more attention from CU and UA than any other school.
What does he like about the Cats?
"They are in the Pac Ten and that is a conference I would like to play in. I might go to their summer camp with Rodney."
Other summer camps the two might attend are at Nebraska and ASU.
At the time of the interview, Nebraska was the only school to call Pacheco this month. Expect him to have many calls by month's end.
He carries a 3.0 core GPA and is awaiting his SAT score. Richard would like to major in Criminal Justice.
