"Clemson is my favorite. I also like Georgia, Troy State, Miami and Auburn. I've talked to Clemson, Georgia, Alabama and Troy so far," D'Vontrey Richardson said.
Why are the Tigers on top?
"Clemson has offered me so that gives them an advantage and they also want me at quarterback. They said they want to take two quarterbacks this year kind of like Tennessee did last season (2004)."
What is most important to Richardson in finding a school?
"Playing time is going to be real big but I'll play any position even though I prefer quarterback."
Does he have any indication of where he'll camp this summer?
"Were going to Clemson and Troy's 7 on 7. I'll go to Alabama and Georgia's senior camp as well."
How would the Lee County star assess his strengths and weaknesses?
"I need to do more to be a leader. This is my senior year and I need to do my part as a senior. What I do best is make plays. I like to try and stay in the pocket, but I can do a lot of things with my legs."
Is Richardson a candidate for an early commitment?
"I'll probably wait a little while. I want to take some visits before I decide."
Is there one player he models his game after?
"I model my game after Michael Vick because he wants to stay in the pocket first and then run second."
This South Georgia prospect will be an awfully hot commodity as we begin to move towards the warmer months of summer.
Scott Kennedy Scouting Report: D'Vontrey Richardson is an early candidate for the Top Overall prospect in the state of Georgia this year. I was blown away by him on film, and I was very interested to get a look at him in person to see how big he was. He measured 6-1 and over 200 pounds, and finished in the Top 10 in both the 40 yard dash and standing broad jump at the Kennedy/CES Southern Invitational last month.
He makes the plays, and he is a standout physically. Some teams may try and move Richardson into another position, and he certainly has the athleticism to do it, but he is so dangerous with the ball in his hands it would be hard to move him. He can beat a team running the ball or throwing the ball, and his teammate Lavelle Parker (#4) is a D1 prospect as well. They should put up huge numbers together as seniors.
