TE Milan Richard Profile
The Tigers sent their offer out to the No. 6 tight end in the class 2014 after the South Carolina game, which Richard attended. It was his first-time in Clemson.
"It was crazy," he told CUTigers in the week leading up to the Georgia Junior Bowl. "I was there with Deshaun Watson, the quarterback that's committed. We hit it off, we're cool now. He's here.
"I loved it. I like coach [Jeff] Scott a lot. We talked to coach [Dabo] Swinney. It's a good place. I think it's a great family environment."
The three-star prospect likes Clemson's hurry-up, no-huddle offense.
"It's obvious they throw the ball around in that offense. At my high school, we run the spread, so think playing in the slot a little bit is more attractive," Richard said. "But there's nothing wrong with putting my hand on the ground. I think I just need to work on that a little bit."
Scott recruits Richard's area.
"I think he's very real. I think he's a straight-forward guy. He doesn't really try to push you. He just tells you how it is and how he feels about you," Richard said. "I like that about him. Even if it's bad, it's good to just hear the truth sometimes."
Along with Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, UCLA, South Carolina, Tennessee, N.C. State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss and Mississippi State have offered.
He has no leaders.
"I've thought about narrowing it down, but I haven't yet. When I do narrow it down, I want that to be the top five. I don't really want that to change. Right now, it's changing. That's why I haven't put anything out yet," Richard said.
As a junior at Calvary Day, Richard caught 22 passes for 341 yards and two touchdowns.
