OL Drew Richmond (6-6 315) of Memphis is one of the nation's most sought after tackles with over 30 offers. He has cut his list to 11 and Clemson was s survivor.

"I have a good relationship with coach Brooks and coach Morris," said Richmond who talked to both coaches last week. "I'm gong to try to visit the first weekend in April if it can be worked out. "

"Clemson has a great chance," Richmond continued. "I feel I would fit well into their offense. I've seen them on TV. I don't like the fast pace. Big guys don't like to run but everybody runs the fast pace."

Richmond has visited Ole Miss and Memphis and is going to Auburn the end of this month. He also plans to visit LSU and to camp at North Carolina.

He might cut his list more this summer and right now he plans to announce on September 9th.
