Dace Richardson Talks about Visit

Along with some big names in town for official visits, there were some major recruits visiting Ann Arbor unofficially for the showdown against Iowa. One big offensive lineman making the trek to Michigan Stadium Saturday was <b>Dace Richardson</b> from Warrensville South in Wheaton, Ill. <br><br> Will there now be an official visit soon for TheInsiders No. 3 ranked offensive lineman.

Offensive lineman Dace Richardson has been very coy about his college choice throughout his recruitment. It has been thought that Iowa was the leader for the five-star standout as he has always mentioned them first and speaks highly of the Hawkeye staff, especially strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle.

Richardson was in Ann Arbor Saturday as the Hawkeyes visited Michigan Stadium in their attempt to take their third-consecutive victory over the Wolverines.

The big man sat with fellow offensive lineman Cory Zirbel from Murray, Ky. and mentioned that David Moosman from Libertyville, Ill. was not at the game. "I had a good time," Richardson said. "They (Michigan) did some things right, you can never go wrong throwing to (Braylon) Edwards. They had a little trouble with Matt Roth but Jake Long did pretty good. They use the line like we do at our school: they do a little zone and a little power and counter, stuff like that. They made some mistakes, both teams did, but the Michigan line made some key plays and took over the game."

Richardson said he talked to Coach Moeller and Coach Carr and the conversation turned to when Richardson would take his official. "We talked about but we didn't set anything up," he said. "Michigan is a school I may visit but I haven't set any visits up yet. The next couple weeks are going to be busy for me so I won't be making any visits then." Richardson added that the Michigan staff went over the depth situation with him, and that there could be some opportunity for playing time, though that wouldn't be a big issue in his decision. He didn't name a leader or a list if top schools.

Warrensville South is coming off their first loss of the season, a 21-14 set-back at the hands of Naperville North. The defeat dropped the Tigers to 4-1 on the season. They host Aurora West this Friday for their homecoming game.
