"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.
