Gary Andersen and his Oregon State Beavers’ program hosted a group of athletes from Paraclete High School on campus recently. Among those present were four-star quarterback Brevin White, linebacker Tyler Richardson and 2019 top prospect Melquan Stovall. BeaverBlitz caught up with Richardson to get his thoughts on the visit.
“The visit to Oregon State was real nice. We all had a good time and the weather was perfect. We went to Oregon first and then went up to OSU in the afternoon. I actually liked OSU better than Oregon,” Tyler told BeaverBlitz.
While Richardson is still waiting on that elusive first offer, he says that a lot of schools have been in touch with him. Oregon State’s coaches are saying that they want to see him play this spring before they extend an offer. They are expected to be at one of Paraclete’s spring practices here in the coming weeks.
“I’ve been talking with some of the coaches there about what they’re trying to build at OSU. It’s mostly been the linebacker coaches that I’ve been talking with. They are going to be coming down to my school this spring to watch some practices then I could pick up an offer.”
Oregon State isn’t the only school however that is monitoring Richardson. The Ducks, Arizona, Arizona State, Hawaii, Troy and Boise State are all in contact with the 6-foot-2 linebacker. Following his time spent at the Oregon schools, Richardson and some of his Paraclete teammates made their way over to Boise to see the Broncos’ program.
“Boise State is another school that I’m hearing from a lot and I was just there to see them as well. It was a good trip also.”
As the spring progresses for Richardson, BeaverBlitz will be in touch.
