    This Rivals 100 RB from Florida has been discussed a little bit in other threads, but I think he deserves his own.

    He is visiting for the Spring Game this weekend.

    I haven't watched a lot of film of him yet, but from what I've seen he's very fast, gets tough yards and doesn't go down easily, yet has great ability to cut and make people miss in the open.

    This is a quote by Richardson, by the way, and just shows what kind of shape our program is in right now.
    "[Coach Henson] told me that he wants me on their football team now. That right there shows me a lot because they just won a national title. That comes from someone I didn't even think that I'd be recruited by."

    ESPN's Evaluation

    his videos are very impressive and would be a good complement to Ford and Pratt.

    2-3. Istlslsls & I have disagreed about this, as he has insisted throughout that we would take 3, but I've said 2.

    With Pratt & Ford already, I think the coaches would be very pleased with finishing like this at RB, but Richardson is a definite take.

    I agree with you. I think we take two.

    You don't think Richardson is a take?

    I wonder if taking 3 effects Michael Dyer coming to LSU. This is the latest article I found.

    ??? LSU didnt' sign a RB the last two years. There is a pressing need there. Now if LSU signed 3 this year, they definitely couldn't take Dyer and Seastrunk next year however.

    I've said it before, but there are no guarantees for coming years. I think the coaches address needs on a year by year basis.

    That being said, we do lose 2 RBs after next year & Murphy will be a Sr so I think we still take a RB (or 2) next year. At this point, I see no reason to think it won't be Dyer.

    Do you think Richardson is a take and Christine Michaels isn't now? I know Richardson passed up Michaels on Rivals ranking, but LSU could care less about rivals. I think both Lacy and Conner are rivals 100 guys and we haven't been pushing them to commit.

    I think we take a 3rd back that is like a Richard Murphy type (scat back, dangerous in the passing game, etc).

    At this point getting Michael might do little to diversify the RB class and so general consensus is to just wait and get 2 more in 2010.

    I'm not necessarily convinced of that. Michael still might be a take for all we know.
