Richardson Discusses Latest

Virginia is looking to add more wide receivers in the 2015 class, and one big target is 2015 Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes wide receiver Tavin Richardson. Richardson is planning a lot of visits this summer and he caught up with Scout.com to discuss the latest.

Tavin Richardson has had a busy spring.

"Clemson came by, Wake Forest, Florida Virginia, Virginia Tech, Michigan State, and Central Florida."

The summer is also shaping up to be just as busy since the 2015 Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes wide receiver is planning to hit the road and make some visits.

"I am supposed to visit Louisville, Florida and Central Florida, Virginia and maybe some other schools."

Richardson has already made one visit recently and that was to Kentucky.

"The offense at UK is basically the same at my high school, so it was very appealing to me," he said to AllWildcats.com after that visit. "With this being my second visit to UK, I feel very comfortable with Coach (Tommy) Mainord, Coach (Neal) Brown and Coach (Mark) Stoops. Kentucky is very high on my list."

Virginia will look to move up that list as well. Virginia assistant Marques Hagans has been charge of Richardson's recruitment. The three-star wide-out says he likes what he has heard from the Wahoo assistant so far.

"I've been talking to Coach Hagans lately and we've been talking about football and life. He is a great guy," he said. "They are building, bringing in good recruits. They need more receivers, so I can come in and play early. "

Richardson is being recruited as a wide receiver by the Wahoos, but Florida, Virginia Tech and others have seen his potential as a tight end. "It really doesn't matter to me, I will play the slot, I play the outside, so it won't be any different than I am doing now."

Richardson's offer list includes: Arkansas, Boston College, Florida, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Miami, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Wake Forest. He is considering making a decision after his senior season, since he plans to take his official visits. He will be looking at offensive style, campus life, how he fits in, and how his relationship with the coaches develop.

Richardson finished his junior season with 53 catches for 836 yards and eight touchdowns.
