Wheaton South junior offensive tackle prospect Dace Richardson (6-foot-6, 300 pounds) has been making the rounds at several college Junior Days this offseason, and one thing is becoming evident: Dace Richardson is in high demand.
"I was at the Purdue Junior Day on Saturday with my Dad," said Dace Richardson. "I was able to meet alot of the coaches, and I really enjoyed the basketball game even though the Boilermakers lost. Coach Tiller sat down with my Dad and I, and he offered me a scholarship."
Richardson added that, "I really enjoyed Purdue. The atmosphere for the basketball game was great, and I also really liked the whole campus and the surroundings as well. I felt bad that we got there late because we didn't realize that they are one hour ahead of us in Illinois down at Purdue, but the coaches really understood and we made the most with the time we had."
As far as his immediate travel plans, Richardson seems to be done with the Junior Day circuit. "Both Tony (Moeaki) and I have been around quite a bit, and now were going to see where we'll go in the spring. We're thinking of checking out a spring practice at Iowa as well as the spring game at Notre Dame, but nothing is set yet."
