Paraclete HS LB Tyler Richardson (Lancaster, CA) visited Boise State along with a few teammates last month and has been on the Bronco radar ever since. Richardson is still looking for his first offer, but believes with a solid senior season a number of schools could be in the mix.
"Still looking for that first offer," he said. "I've been talking heavily with Boise State and Sac State recently," he added.
"Coach Marks is recruiting me," he stated. "He comes off as really friendly and up-front. He knows what it means to be a Bronco. I like how he tells it like it is."
"Coach Marks was at our school last week," said Richardson. "It was good to see him again and to know that a school like Boise State is really interested in me."
Richardson went on to say that Coach Marks told his HS coach that the Broncos will be paying close attention to him this fall.
"Boise State wants to see me more during my senior season," he said. "They plan on keeping in contact with me. Now it's up to me to go out there and play like I know how to play."
"I love how they put people in the NFL," he said in regards to Boise State. "They breed NFL players up there. They might not be Alabama, but I know they can prepare me for that next level."
The sleeper LB visited The Blue in April along with a few teammates and believes Boise State could be a perfect fit.
"I love it up there," said Richardson. "We got a chance to tour the campus and facilities. It's really a beautiful place. The people in Boise were so friendly and welcoming. It was definitely a place I could see myself for four years."
"I like how people sleep on Boise State's defense," he stated. "They really know how to attack the ball and they're always picking each other up. They play as one unit."
Richardson and his teammates captured a CIF championship and a state championship in 2016. Can they repeat this fall?
"To start 0-3 and then win state was amazing," he said. "The credit goes to our coaches for challenging us with such a hard schedule to start the season. We got into the playoffs because we cruised through our schedule after those three games and it really prepared us for what we saw from teams in the playoffs."
"We can win state again," said Richardson. "We had a lot of juniors on our defense last season so I expect us to be even better this season. We just got to go out there and play together and we'll keep winning."
So, what does Tyler Richardson (6'2, 215) bring to the gridiron?
"I can read offenses," he said. "I love playing outside because it allows me to attack from sideline to sideline," he added.
As a junior, he racked up 86 tackles and 2 sacks.
