Terry Richardson (5-foot-9, 162-pounds) is one of several players from the Detroit area that were invited down to Notre Dame's junior day. Richardson did have plans to make the trip to South Bend, but they had to be set aside.
"I won't be able to make that trip as scheduled, because of the state indoor track meet," Richardson said. "I had planned on being there, but obviously won't be able to make it. I do think some of my friends and teammates will be down there, James Ross, Royce Jenkins-Stone and Laron Taylor.
"I really don't talk to the coaches that much. I did tell them that I was interested in getting down to the junior day. I'll call coach Martin back and try to set something u for another day. They have come by the school a couple times. I guess they check us out."
The last prospect from Cass that the Irish were heavily involved with was lineman Joseph Barksdale. Barksdale ended up at LSU and the Tigers also appear to be interested in bringing Richardson to Baton Rouge.
"I toured LSU this summer, and I saw Joseph down there," Richardson explained. "I went down there for a camp, and I got an offer from them. Then we went over to Alabama and I got offered there.
"Some of the bigger offers I have are from Alabama, LSU, USC, Michigan and Michigan State. I talked to an Oregon coach (Monday) and they're very close to offering. They're all recruiting me to play cornerback,"
Richardson has been invited to play in the UnderArmor All-American game.
