Wheaton, Ill. four star ranked offensive tackle prospect Dace Richardson (6-foot-6, 300 pounds) spend this last weekend at home, and Richardson was still enjoying the Tigers 35-14 win last Friday over West Chicago. Wheaton South (4-0) will square off this Friday night against DuPage Valley conference rival Naperville North (4-0) in Naperville.
“We had a really good game last Friday night against West Chicago," Dace Richardson said. “Our offense had over 400 yards of offense, and our backs have been doing really well so far this season. This week against Naperville North will be a great game, and they have a lot of talented players back this year."
Richardson also plans to check out the Iowa/Michigan game this Saturday in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
"I'm planning to check out the Iowa/Michigan game on Saturday. I'm going to try to get to a few college games this fall, and I had a schedule set up but I need to look at that schedule again before I can confirm any additional college game visits."
Richardson, who has yet to set any official visits, is also still struggling with narrowing down his early favorites list at this point.
"The coaches have been calling and asking when I'll start to set some official visits, and I've been talking with those coaches about some various dates for visits. I'm still trying to decide who I'll take official visits to, and I've just been busy with school and football to worry about it for now."
As far as the volume of calls from college coaches, Richardson is glad that the volume of calls has started to settle down.
"The calls really haven't been too bad lately, and it seems that the coaches have spread out the times when they call so it's been much more manageable. Basically, if I'm not studying or doing homework during the week I'll talk with them. If I'm studying, then we let them know that they will need to call me back later. I'm trying to be as accommodating as possible with the coaches."
