Another trip for Richardson

Trent Richardson committed to Alabama back in June, but he has continued to keep an interest in a few other schools since then, including LSU. The nation's 4th ranked running back was in Baton Rouge yesterday for the LSU-Alabama game, and he isn't ready to head home just yet.

“We had a game Friday night, but I got in early Saturday morning,” Richardson said. “I left right when the game was over to go watch my brother’s game in Lafayette, but I’m actually driving back to Baton Rouge right now to talk to the coaches some more. I’ll head back home to Florida whenever I finish there.”


Richardson (5-10, 215, 4.5) also visited LSU two weeks ago when the Tigers hosted Georgia, but he arrived late to the game because he was taking the ACT. This time he got there early and was able to take in the full experience.


“When I got there I was pretty much all over the place the whole time,” he said. “I finally got to meet up with Russell Shepard and a few of the other guys. I’m going to meet with Russell again when I get back because he is still there.


“As for the coaches, I got to talk to Coach Porter and Coach Henson yesterday,” Richardson continued. “I’m going back to talk to them more today. I didn’t get talk to Coach Miles because I left right when the game was over, but hopefully I get to see him today too.”



Trent Richardson is still looking at his options


The Tigers showdown with the Crimson Tide was being hyped by some as the biggest game in Tiger Stadium history. Richardson doesn’t have many objections to that.


“You couldn’t ask for a better game than what both teams gave,” he said. “Both of them played hard and never quit. I thought LSU’s offensive line did really well. They’re just still having problems at the quarterback position. I think Russell is going to come in and change that next year.


“I was at the Georgia game, but I think there were a lot more people at the game yesterday,” Richardson continued. “It was really loud. I was with Chris Davenport and a few other guys and we could barely talk to each other. And the student section is just crazy.”


With another visit being wrapped up, Richardson has plans for one more unofficial visit this season, and a few officials once the season is over.


“I’m going to the Alabama-Auburn game,” Richardson said. “I have officials set up to LSU in December (12/13) and Alabama in January. I want to set up an official to Florida too. I’ll have my final decision once I finish taking all my visits.”
