"I have visited South Carolina for a few of their games, but it is all up in the air," says the 6-foot-4, 210 pounder with a gun for an arm. "I am leaning at going out of state, but I really want to keep my options open based on what happens with offers."
The change came from Virginia after they called him recently.
"I just received a call on Saturday from Virginia saying they would be taking any more quarterbacks this year. Apparently they got a commitment over the summer and recently had a kid transfer in."
With Virginia gone, Richardson has a new top five.
"Right now, I like Clemson, South Carolina, Duke, Maryland, and NC State. Maybe after the season is over I will take some more visits, but it depends on what the coaches say."
This year, Richardson and his Sumter teammates are doing well with a 4-0 record and won 46-0 Friday night. Richardson went 11-16 for 183 yards and three touchdowns on the night in the Gamecocks' no huddle offense.
