Richard has been getting a lot of attention lately from various schools around the nation. Coaches have been ringing his phone off the hook lately. Has Notre Dame been in contact? "Coach Willingham called the other day but I wasn't here. He talked to my mother for a while. He calls every week but I usually miss his calls."
Richard finished his season with 80 tackles, with 20 tackles for loss, 12 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He modestly said, "I had an okay season. I could've done a lot better I think." Hopefully, when it's all said and done, he'll be putting up numbers like that in an Irish uniform.
Comments: We believe that Richard is very wide open at this point. He seems to really like Notre Dame, and really enjoyed his visit to South Bend back in October. The Miami visit on the 12th looms large still. We believe it may come down to a Notre Dame/Miami race for Richard's services.
