For weeks Detroit Cass Tech CB Terry Richardson has expressed his desire to visit schools other than the one he is committed to. That, however, conflicted with Michigan’s stance on its commitments visiting elsewhere. Something had to give. Earlier this week it was Richardson that acquiesced. The four-star corner was one of a handful of commits in attendance for Michigan’s opener versus Western Michigan. When asked afterward whether he’d be catching any games at other schools, he didn’t mince words.
“No sir,” he said firmly. “I already talked to Greg Mattison like two days ago. He knows about it. Let’s just say that when me, Royce (Jenkins-Stone) and James (Ross) get to Michigan, we’re going to have the Big House rocking!”
All three youngsters watched Michigan’s defense intensely Saturday. While doing so, Richardson couldn’t help but envision him and his cohorts in their winged helmets.
“(The defense) looked good,” he said. “Real solid. But they’re missing me Royce and James… so it could a little better (laughter).”
With certainty restored to his recruitment, Richardson plans to be at as many Michigan home games as possible. He also plans to end his high school on a high note.
“Me and Royce are doing good,” said the Cass Tech standout. “We’re really trying to lead our team back the way did last year. This is our senior year and we’re trying to make the most of it. We’re playing pretty good and hard, we’re trying to stay healthy, we’re happy to be committed to Michigan still, and we’re just trying to make stuff happen.”
Cass tech rebounded from a 43-7 loss to Farmington Hills Harrison in week one with a 62-6 victory over Detroit Central in week two. The Technicians take the field again Friday against Detroit Southeastern.
