"I'm up to 20 offers now," Dace Richardson said. "I don't really have a favorite but some of the schools that I like that have offered are Iowa, Tennessee, Michigan and USC."
Richardson made an unofficial visit to Michigan for a spring practice, and had visited Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Northwestern, Purdue and MSU. Will he be attending any camps this summer? "I'm not sure right now," he said.
The 6-foot-6, 300-pound lineman said Michigan is looking at him for the right tackle position. "It's hard to say right now what position I'll end up playing," he said. "All the schools are recruiting me for the offensive line but I won't know if I'll be a right or left tackle until I actually get to school." Richardson said Iowa offers the best chance for early playing time.
Richardson also played basketball up until his junior year. He gave it up so he could use the time to focus on weight training. He now reports a max bench press of 310 pounds and a max squat of 405. He did not attend any MSL or Nike camps this past summer and reports a 5.1 time in the 40.
He is orginally from California and grew up a fan of USC and UCLA. Both schools have offered and are in consideration for his services. "There is no problem leaving Illinois," Richardson said. "My parents want me to go where I feel most comfortable. I'll probably wait until after the season to make a decision, but if some place just feels right and I know it's the right school, then I'll make the decision at that time."
Richardson said he feels most comfortable with the coaching staffs from Iowa, Tennessee, Michigan State, and USC.
