6-foot-2, 205 pound quarterback prospect Jon Richt, son of Georgia head coach Mark Richt and current Clemson verbal commitment, is putting up impressive numbers during his senior season for Prince Avenue Christian.

"We are 5-2 so far," he said. "I have thrown for about 1,000 yards and 13 or 14 touchdowns. I don't have any interceptions this year."

The Clemson coaching staff has maintained close contact with Richt over the course of the last few months.

"They just check in with me. They want to see how my season is going. They discuss how their season is going and everything," said Richt. "I went up there for the Virginia Tech game. The atmosphere at Clemson is always amazing. I enjoyed the way they fought back. They showed a lot of pride."

Another trip to Death Valley will occur later this year.

"I definitely will be back for another game," said Richt. "I'm just not sure which one."

What are Richt's thoughts about running down the hill the first time?

"I am just scared I am going to fall. I will be one of the guys in the back so that I can make sure I get down the hill slow," he said.

Clemson doesn't have Georgia on the schedule while Jon will be a Tiger, but he would love to play against his father in a bowl game.

"I would love to do that. That would be awesome," said Richt.

When asked if he is still firm in his commitment to Clemson, Richt responded, "It is a definite. I will be a Tiger."
