"We did a lot yesterday on our visit to Minnesota," Georgia defensive back Bryson Richardson said to GopherIIlustrated. "They showed us their facilities, the stadium, and campus. It was very eventful. The Gophers campus is nice. I feel like they have everything to offer for students there. The facilities they have now are nice, but the $200 million facilities they're building will probably be better. Their spring practice was different from most practices I've been to as there was a lot of energy from the coaches and it was fast paced. Coach P.J. Fleck had a high motor the whole time and it was fun to watch. Their locker room at TCF Bank Stadium caught me by surprise as I didn't know they had the biggest in college football. The stadium was also cool to be in."
"I talked a lot with head coach PJ Fleck, defensive coordinator Robb Smith and defensive back's coach Mo Linguist while on the visit," Richardson explained. "Coach Smith's message was that he just wants me to be a part of Minnesota. They emphasized to me how their program is on the rise and they want me to be a part of it. Coach Mo said the same thing basically too as he really wants me to join their come up at Minnesota. He sees me starting off at free safety then eventually shifting between that, nickel corner and strong safety. Coach Fleck's got a motor that's always running. He's energetic and enthusiastic. We talked about my recruitment, decision making and more. I'm glad we got to know each other better. My mom loved the visit too. As far as how this visit compares to other places like N.C. State and Tennessee where I've also visited, Minnesota is trying to be noticed as an elite team who can win championships. They've invested a lot into their football program and they're turning things around for themselves. I enjoyed everything about them and liked what they had to offer. I'm still going to visit Stanford this weekend, and I'm not sure what visits I'll be taking after that. It'll still be awhile until I make a decision."
