Wheaton, Ill. four star ranked offensive tackle prospect Dace Richardson (6-foot-6, 300 pounds) can definitely say that he left more than just his presence in Ann Arbor from his official visit last weekend to the University of Michigan.
He left his clothes.
“It was a pretty good official visit overall," Richardson said. “The only problem was I left my clothes in someone's car. I put some of my clothes in a separate bag and I left the bag in one of the coaches car. The coaches are coming back to Wheaton this week so they will bring my clothes back."
Richardson talked in detail about his official visit to Michigan as well as his overall impressions.
"My hosts over the weekend were Rueben Riley and Jake Long. They are both two big linemen and we all got along really well all weekend long. Friday we were able to watch practice, then we had dinner after wards with the players, recruits and the coaches. Friday night after dinner we also had time to hang out with the players and that was fun. I really got along with the players pretty well, they were all pretty cool guys."
"Saturday was more of an academic day. We were able to talk with various academic advisors and professors, and we also had some tours of the campus. We also went to the basketball game and that was a really good time. Saturday night we had dinner with the recruits and the coaches, and the food was good all weekend long and they had plenty of it as well. Saturday night I just hung out with some of the players and the other recruits, and we had a good time."
"Sunday was breakfast with with the coaches, and I had meetings with Coach Carr and Coach Moeller. I would rates my visit to Michigan pretty high, it was an overall very good visit for me and my Dad. My Dad was really impressed with the great mix of academics and athletics at Michigan."
Richardson will now head to the University of Iowa this coming weekend.
"I still have official visit set for Iowa and USC, and I'm pretty sure that I won't be taking a fifth visit.I'll make my final college choice after my official visit to USC in late January."
