Richardson led his team to the state championship game this year but they fell 28-21 in the finals. The talented quarterback had 235 yards passing including 1 touchdown and he also scored on a quarterback sneak.

Clemson asssistant coach Dabo Swinney talked with the prize recruit after the game. "He said I played well. We just really talked about the game."

The 6-5, 210 pound prospect is not ready to go on record with a leader at this point. "Right now everything is about the same. I will start setting my official visits over the next few days."

Where will the Sumter standout visit? "All I know right now is that Memphis and Clemson will get a visit."

Don't expect an early commitment from the Palmetto star. "I'm not sure when I will commit at this point. It will probably be close to signing day."

Richardson will take a few days to rest and then start preparing for the Shrine Bowl where he hopes to be the starting quarterback for South Carolina. "I'm getting ready for the Shrine Bowl. I hope I can continue to do the things I have done to lead my team this season."
