Terry Richardson (5-foot-9, 162-pounds) was invited to Notre Dame for the junior day on Saturday, but there was a conflicted with his state in-door track meet. Instead of pushing a visit back into March, Richardson visited Notre Dame last Friday.
"Everything went real nice," he said. "We were the only two guys there. They gave us a tour of everything and then we got to talk to the coaching staff.
"The coaches broke everything down about how they felt about us. We had a chance to talk to coach Kelly, which was really cool. He was a really nice guy. Coach Martin is a cool down to earth guy.
"They showed me some stuff and I got a different vibe than other places," he said. "I'm pretty glad that I got a chance to go check it out. It was pretty cool. Notre Dame showed me exactly what I thought they were about. Overall, the visit was great. It really went good."
Although Richardson was impressed with what the Notre Dame football program has to offer, he realizes that the recruiting process takes time to work through.
"It was my first time down there checking out Notre Dame," he said. "I'm pretty sure after a few more trips and a few more meetings with the coaches, and then I'll be able to see how I really feel about Notre Dame."
On Sunday, Richardson made his way to Ohio State for their junior day.
"Ohio State did offer me," he said. "Going to Notre Dame and then Ohio State, those are my last two visits that I had planned out. Now I need to plan out some more and see what schools that I really want to hit and that I'm interested in."
