A.J. Richardson sent his highlight tape to the San Diego State coaching staff and soon after the Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne wide receiver had his first offer.
The 6-foot-, 185-pound wide receiver hopes that trend continues with other schools that are showing interest.
"I sent them my film and then they called my coach and told him they wanted to offer," Richardson said. "They had been sending me letters and told me they were looking at me already.

"I'm just waiting for their junior day. They told me they were going to give me the information for their junior day and I was going to go up there and meet all their coaching staff."
Richardson, who finished with 63 receptions for 947 yards and nine touchdowns in his junior season, attended the USC junior day this past weekend and loved it. The Trojans didn't offer but they're keeping tabs on the local receiver.
"They want me to go back to camp," Richardson said. "I really liked it up there. It was really cool. It made my interest in them even higher. I like how they get their receivers the ball so I liked it a lot."
The Narbonne standout is in no rush to make a decision. He said other than his offer from San Diego State he's receiving interest from Arizona State, UCLA, USC, Oregon and Boise State.
Since he doesn't plan to make his commitment until his senior season, Richardson has a lot of time to pick up even more offers.
"I'm not rushing a decision at all," Richardson said. "I know a lot more offers will be coming this summer. I am thinking about committing during the season for sure. I want to make my decision toward the end of the season."
