Oklahoma Athlete Close To Decision?

Oklahoma prospect talks about his recruitment and recent visit for Missouri's Black and Gold game

Earlier this spring, 2011 safety/athlete prospect Kevonte Richardson 6'1"  195  4.5  OKC (OK) Millwood had joined several of his teammates for an unofficial visit to Missouri.  Following that visit, Richardson ended up with a Missouri offer.  On Saturday, Richardson brought his parents with him, as they visited Missouri for the Spring Game.  ShowMeMizzou spoke with Kevonte after he returned home, and asked him about his most recent visit.

"It went pretty good," Richardson said.  "My mom and dad liked it.............. The said that they liked everything about it.  All the coaches answered their questions without them even asking.  They really liked it................ That was my second visit to Missouri.  I think it's pretty nice."

Richardson talked about the scrimmage.  "I liked the scrimmage," said the talented prospect.  "The offense needed a little work, and the defense, I loved the defense. The defense played hard every play."

Richardson said that he currently holds offers from Arizona, Kansas, Tulsa, Utah State, UNLV, and Louisiana Tech, in addition to Missouri.

Richardson addressed where Missouri stands among his list of schools.  "They're on top with Kansas and Arizona," said Kevonte.  "They're number one, on top of my list."

Richardson recently canceled a scheduled visit to Nebraska, and said that he's supposed to visit Kansas in a couple of weeks.

Richardson expressed that he wants to be sure about his decision, because it's important to him to stick with the commitment that he makes.  He said that he just wants to take a little more time with his decision, and that he'll be in touch with the Tigers' coaches.

He talked about where his recruitment stands after this visit.  "I'm going to still wait just a little bit longer," said Richardson, "just to see what else comes up.  And, if nothing else comes up, I'll probably end up committing."

As for a timetable for his decision, Richardson said, "I really don't even know, to tell you the truth.  It's probably not going to be that long."
