Santa Ana, Calif. – Though the West squad at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl has some great receivers on display this week, one of its most productive pass catchers will be watching all week from the sideline.
Richardson injured himself while scoring a game-tying touchdown in the playoffs.
Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne wide receiver A.J. Richardson is out this week with a bruised knee that he suffered late in the playoffs but he’s still out taking in the action at practices all week. The time off may give Richardson some time to think about his recruitment and where things stand with his current commitment to Cal.
“I talked to the new staff,” Richardson said of Cal and new head coach Sonny Dykes. “I’m going to take my official visits to get more perspective because I’m about 50/50 right now.”
Those visits will likely be to some combination of Duke, Nevada and Boise State along with Cal.
“I know for sure the one I scheduled to Boise is on the 15th,” he said. “I have to schedule the rest of them.”
“I thought it was good,” he said of the interaction. “I’ve got to go up there more to get to know them more. I’ve heard good things about them so I’m looking forward to meeting them and getting to know them.”
Among the other schools that Richardson is considering. Boise State looks to be the biggest threat right now.
“I like Boise. The way they’re talking, I just want to go down there and check it out and see if I like it there. Then Nevada and Duke to have good offenses so these official visits will really tell me what school I’m going to.”
Richardson says he is still committed to Cal but it’s not a “100 percent” commitment. He will wait until National Signing Day to make his college decision final.
