Alabama '10 WR Visits SEC Game

Jeremy Richardson, wide receiver from Springville, (Ala.), is quickly emerging on the scene as one of the top players in the Southeast for 2010. Richardson has collected a pair of big offers from Alabama and LSU. He visited Tuscaloosa when the Rebels paid a visit.

"I went to the Alabama-Ole Miss game," said Jeremy Richardson. "The game was very good. It was exciting. The game was exciting in the first half. The second half Alabama kind of let down and let Ole Miss come back against them."

"I spoke to a few of the coaches. I talked to the receivers coach [Curt Cignetti]. He told me he wanted me to keep coming back. I got to go in the locker room after the game as well."

"I talked to Nick Saban before the game alone. He talked about academics and stuff like that. He said there was a good chance I would start if I came to Alabama. I really liked seeing him. It was great to see that he would take time before the game to talk to me."

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect isn't ready to proclaim an overall favorite.

"I feel like Alabama really wants me," Richardson said. "They are showing a lot of interest. I am kind of leaning toward Alabama, but I am still looking at Auburn and LSU as well. I wouldn't say I have an overall favorite yet."

Richardson showcased his talents against Brookwood Friday night by adding more than 200 yards to his stat sheet. He scored on the first offensive play of the game--a 64-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Seth Baker. Springville took a commanding 41-12 lead into halftime and held on for a 48-32 victory.

"The game was great," Richardson said. "We put up 48 points. I didn't see any action in the second half. I had two touchdowns in the game for over 200 yards. We play against Hayden this week for Homecoming."
