"Yeah, I made it to Lincoln for camp," Richards said. "I got through some back-pedaling and some break drills. Then we started doing some hitting drills and I rolled my ankle again. I had to sit out and ice it the rest of the time."
Some might have chosen not to go to Lincoln to camp because they were hurt. For Richards, there wasn't even a choice in the matter. He wanted to get on Nebraska's radar and said that he was happy with his decision.
"It was best to go and show my interest in the school and the program. It was good to get that chance to compete. I think that was what the coaches at Nebraska would have wanted me to do."
While there was a chance to get out and do some drills before injury, Richards feels like the best part of the week was getting a chance to interact with the coaches that are there at Nebraska.
"I didn't get a chance to talk to Coach Marvin Sanders, sit down, like Pelini. We talked a lot through drills. He would come over and ask where I was from and asked who offered me and how recruiting was going."
In the end, Richards left with another setback to an already bad ankle. With a chance to be a week closer to healthy or a chance to go to Nebraska and meet the coaches, Richards is happy with his decision.
"Making the trip was worth it just to meet Bo Pelini. He's such a great guy. It was really worth it to me."
