Only a few weeks ago, A.J. Richardson had two offers and since then he has doubled that number with Hawaii, San Diego State, Houston and Duke on his list as the off-season continues.
That is positive news for the Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne three-star wide receiver who said this past weekend at the IMG Madden 7-on-7 West Regional in Redondo Beach, Calif., that he wants to be patient with the recruiting process and see which other programs get involved.
"I'm just keeping my mind open." Richardson said.

"I know that's not the only four, I know there are more to come, so I'm just letting them come in. I'm going to keep working hard and letting the offers come in."
The next step for Richardson, who finished with 63 receptions for 947 yards and nine touchdowns in his junior season, is to take unofficial visits to Cal and Washington. USC and UCLA have also been keeping in contact.
Since Richardson, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect, is not close to making his commitment, he's content on sitting back and seeing what other programs get involved in the coming months.
By taking visits and figuring out what he likes and dislikes at each school, it will help him as he looks to make his pledge sometime before his senior season at Narbonne kicks off.
"Right now all those Pac-12 schools have been showing interest but nothing too much about an offer just yet from them," Richardson said.
"I'm just taking my time. I'm just waiting for more schools to come and I'll probably make my decision before the season. It's way too early to tell a favorite."
Richardson was one of the top offensive performers a few weeks back at the New Level Athletics Elite 7on7 in Las Vegas.
