Crespi HS TE Pierce Richardson (Encino, CA) has been looking for a Bronco offer ever since he took an unofficial visit to Boise State last month. The standout TE loved every aspect of his visit to Boise. "I loved the town," he said. "I was there for three days over my break and I love the people there. It was really nice and the coaches are down to earth. They tell you the truth and I think I fit in well," he added.

Richardson (6'4, 216, 4.7) has been keeping in close contact with Assistant Head Coach Brent Pease. "Coach Pease was the first guy to call me," he said. "The TEs Coach told me he likes my film. The first thing he said was that I was way bigger than he thought."

Pierce currently holds offers from Iowa State, Utah State, and Wyoming. What sets Boise State apart from the others? "Boise State is a smaller program but play with the big programs and compete. That all comes down to coaching."

Many recruits would prefer to enter college immediately as opposed to grayshirting. That's not the case with Richardson. "I'd be willing to grayshirt as well. Coach Pete jumped out of his seat when I told him that. It's just another year for me to lift and get big."

Boise State's limited scholarship numbers for the 2010 recruiting class has left a constant theme for many recruits. Be patient. "They just told me to be patient," Richardson said. "I think they want to see my summer film from practice as well. Hopefully, I'll have an offer by the end of July or August."

Last season, the Crespi Celts finished with a 6-4 record. Richardson hopes to lead his team on a successful 2009 campaign and improve that record. "We underachieved," he said in reference to the 2008 season. "We made it to the finals in my sophomore year and lost to Long Beach Poly. We want to win league, beat Notre Dame, and win a championship this season," Richardson added.

What does Richardson bring to the gridiron? "I can do it all," he said. "I can play HBack, receiver, run routes, block, and do anything on the field."
