Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne athlete A.J. Richardson (6-1, 185), holds four offers, that span the country, but with Narbonne's strong senior class, a number of coaches have been making their way by the school, and Richardson thinks that it's just a matter of time before more offers come to him.

"I've gotten offers from Houston, Duke, San Diego State and Hawaii," said Richardson. "And I've not been offered yet, but I've talked a lot with Boise State, Arizona, Arizona State, Utah and Florida, and a lot more have been interested."

Richardson said several schools have come by, namely Florida most recently, and Duke, Houston and Washington all have plans to stop by Narbonne in May.

"Cal has been down too and UCLA is coming and San Diego State has also been by," said Richardson.

This Saturday, Richardson will be going to UCLA's Spring Game, and he thinks the Bruins could join the mix soon with an offer.

"It could be UCLA or it could be Washington that offers me next," said Richardson. "A lot of schools just want to see me more. Boise State and Arizona are the ones I'm liking the most though, right now."

The offers from Duke, Houston and Hawaii have all come as a receiver, while San Diego State offered Richardson as an athlete, with the idea of playing him on defense most discussed.

"San Diego State offered me as an athlete, and they like me more as a safety," said Richardson. "I like receiver more, but I'll do anything to help the team. If its offense or defense, I'll play what I can to help the team."

Richardson said he'd like to take all five of his trips if he can, but said he'd ideally have a decision made before he can take his trips.

"I probably want to commit before the season, but I'd like to still take trips to the five schools I'm interested in," said Richardson.

Last fall, Richardson had 34 receptions for 496 yards and three touchdowns as a 2011 junior at helping the Gauchos to the City Section title.

This spring, he's been playing with B2G, helping them win the IMG/Madden 7on7 West Qualifier last month.
