Wheaton, Ill. four star ranked offensive tackle prospect Dace Richardson (6-foot-6, 300 pounds) from Wheaton South High School was very happy to have gotten a payback win last Saturday against Naperville North in Class 8A second round action.
“It was good to get a win over Naperville North on Saturday," Richardson said. “We lost to them earlier in the regular season, and we really played well on Saturday. We now get to play another conference team this week in Naperville Central. Some people don't like this playoff format, but I like the fact that we get to play some great teams, and hopefully playing these teams again will make us better as we get deeper in the playoffs."
"We had some issues scoring in the red zone early against North, but we finally got things going and won. Our defense played a great game against North, and they have been getting better and better in the playoffs. Now we play Central, and they are yet another great team plus we have to play them at Central. We're expecting yet another tough game from them this week."
Richardson in the meantime will put his recruiting as well as setting any official visits on the back burner.
"I'm just concentrating on the playoffs for now, so I'm not going to set any additional visits until the season is over with. I'm planning to set an official visit with USC, plus I already have an official visit set to Iowa on December 10th. I'm going to probably set at least one more official visit after the season, and I'm looking at Michigan, Miami (Fla.), Oklahoma and Wisconsin. Wisconsin has always been in the mix for me and I'm looking at them pretty hard."
