May 12, 2014 

OL Drew Richmond (6-6 315) of Memphis cut his list from 32 to 11 in March and continues to work with that group. Clemson, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Memphis, Ohio State, LSU, Florida State, UCLA, Ole Miss and Mississippi State are on his short list.

Richmond plans to announce his decision September 9th giving him plenty of time to see several of these schools in person. Thus far, Alabama, Tennessee and Auburn have been his only visits.

"I liked them all," he said. "They were all very impressive."

He also plans to visit Clemson though he does not have a date in mind. . He recently received a visit from the Tigers during spring ball.

"They just want to get me on campus," Richmond said. "They think that I could play early and that's important to me."

Richmond said that he does not have any favorites and that distance from home will not be a factor.
