With spring practice in the rearview mirror it is clear that offensive tackle is one position where the incoming freshman will have a chance to compete playing time. Richardson has been working hard to prepare himself for the competition.

"The coaches gave me a workout plan," said Richardson in a recent interview. "I have been going to the gym and lifting weights. I have also been doing some karate."

The 6-7, 330 pound lineman traveled to Clemson to see the Orange and White game earlier this month. "I went up with my mother and father. I enjoyed the visit. I talked with all of the coaches. I also saw a lot of the players."

Richardson and his family are ready to start the Clemson experience. "I'm just looking forward to the experience. My family is excited about the opportunity."

When asked if he is on schedule to qualify for Clemson, Richardson responded, "Everything is in good shape."

"It's nice to have the recruiting process behind me. I'm ready for August to get here."
