TE Milan Richard Profile
The Clemson coaches reciprocated the feeling.
"Really, it was just reassurance that they wanted me and I wanted them, just going over the scheme, what they see playing and how they see me developing and things like that," Richard said, during an interview with CUTigers.
He added, "It was great. It was a good time getting to know everyone and being reassured that was the place that I wanted to go."
Ranked by Scout.com as the No. 22 tight end in the class of 2014, Richard was around a number of his future teammates during the trip.
"I was with Korie Rogers a lot, Adam Choice, Kendall Joseph. I spent a lot of time with Trevion Thompson," he said.
Thompson pulled the trigger and committed to Clemson before leaving on Sunday. The decision was announced later that evening.
"I knew he enjoyed the weekend," Richard said. "I didn't know that he was going to commit, but I definitely know that he had a good time."
He thinks Tennessee commitment Cory Thomas, who was also in on an official, enjoyed his visit.
"He's a big kid. I know he's committed to Tennessee. His mom likes it, so I think we're in a good position," Richard said.
His recruiter of record, Jeff Scott, is scheduled to have an in-home visit with Richard next Tuesday.
When Richard arrives to Clemson in the summer, he'll join the tight end group, which includes several upperclassmen: Sam Cooper, Stanton Seckinger, Jay Jay McCullough, Jordan Leggett and D.J. Greenlee.
Richard discussed with the coaches how he'll be used in Chad Morris' offense.
"Their tradition 3-back that can be attached or in the backfield, also spread out a little bit in the slot, just the tradition 3-back that coach Morris likes to use," Richard said.
With no athletics to worry about this spring, Richard's focused on next season.
"I'm not playing any other sports right now. I'm just working out and getting stronger," he said.
