2015 Olney (MD) Good Counsel cornerback Roger Richardson had been a prospect receiving interest from many top programs but had yet to rake in his coveted first offer. That time has come for the 5-foot-10 junior.
"Georgia Tech offered me yesterday," confirmed Richardson.
Being his first scholarship offer, it was a great moment for the Good Counsel product to soak in.
"I was excited and thankful," he said. "My first offer had come and I've been talking to Georgia Tech for a while."
Georgia Tech had plans to see Richardson soon after the offer was extended but weather issues have derailed that schedule.
"Coach Speed is who offered me," Richardson noted. "He said they would be my school too but their flight got canceled."
Despite residing in the Mid-Atlantic region, the 2015 cornerback has already got a taste of Atlanta. He was on the Yellow Jacket campus for the Georgia game near the end of November.
"I took a visit down there during Thanksgiving break," Richardson mentioned. "I loved it. It was a great environment. I went down there for the Georgia game."
"It was a great time," he added. "I got to learn everything about the school that I didn't already know."
