Tigers Battling UGA for Top QB?

The Clemson Tigers would like to add a blue-chip quarterback in the 2006 signing class and Lee County standout D'Vontrey Richardson is at the top of the board. Can the Tigers fight off the Dawgs for this star quarterback? CUTigers.com has the latest in this recruiting update.

6-foot-1, 205 pound quarterback prospect D'Vontrey Richardson already has an impressive offer list through the very early stages of the recruiting process. "I have nine offers now. I have offers from Troy State, Clemson, Georgia, Louisville, UAB, Alabama, Wake Forest, Oregon and LSU. I also am getting interest from Florida State, Ohio State, Tennessee, Arkansas and Auburn," Richardson told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

When asked if he has a leader, Richardson responded, "I really don't have a leader, but I still like Clemson. I also like Georgia. I would say they are my top two right now."

The Tigers appear to be offering the dual-threat quarterback a chance to show his athleticism. "Yeah, Clemson wants me as a quarterback," said Richardson. "They think I would be good at running the draws and using my feet. They run the same offense as us. It should be easy to come in and learn the offense."

Richardson's summer camp plans are almost set as well. "We are going to the seven on seven camp at Clemson. We are also going to Troy and Florida State. I may also try to make it to the Auburn senior camp," added the rising senior quarterback.

Interestingly enough, with scholarship offers coming in, and a short list of favorites, don't be surprised to a commitment in the near future. "After baseball season is over I will start thinking about it more. That's the plan. Right now, I still plan to make my decision sometime this summer," said Richardson.

Of course, Richardson is also the teammate of another recruit- wide receiver LaValle Parker. "We still talk about playing together," said Richardson. "We talked a lot about it during football season. He's doing track and I'm doing baseball so we haven't talked about it as much lately. After baseball is over we will have more time to talk about it."

Several coaches are starting to visit the talented athlete. "Last week I had a visit from Auburn, UAB and Florida State. I'm not sure if anyone is coming this week or not."
