Recruiting heating up for Georgia QB

Coming into the season, the 6-5 and 215 pound lefty <b>Zach Richardson</b> only lacked experience. As the experience is piling up, so is the recruiting attention. Richardson will have a very interested spectator in the crowd for homecoming this evening.

Zach Richardson was a sleeper QB prospect at Lassiter High School in Marietta, GA this summer. He had not started any games in his career, but he sent a buzz through the crowds at the camps that he attended this summer. After helping to lead his team to a 4-2 start, he can no longer be considered a sleeper. Coaches from the schools that he camped this summer, Auburn have been in contact with him regularly since they have been allowed. Lassiter will have a very interested spectator in the crowd tonight for homecoming against Etowah.

"Coach [Randy] Sanders from Tennessee called Zach tonight and said he was going to come down to see the game on Friday," said Richardson's father Art Richardson. "He told Zach about the recent traditions of quarterbacks at Tennessee like Manning, Martin, and Clausen. We're still waiting on his first offer, but things seem like they are heating up!"

Richardson is a big, strong armed lefty that can make all of the throws. At 6-5 and 215 pounds, he has the prototype size for a pocket passer, but he has good mobility as well. The only thing Richardson lacked coming into the season was experience, but as he is showing what he can do on the field, coaches are becoming more and more interested. It shouldn't be too much longer for Richardson's first big offer to arrive in writing. Tennessee, Auburn, and Georgia appear to still be the leaders for Richardson.
