    ESPN's 2010 scouting report on Richardson

    Someone did their homework...

    Richardson is an athletic pocket passer that is flying under the radar as a quality passer with a cool demeanor and upside to develop both his frame and physical tools. He has a calm swagger about him, a live arm and a fluid release. Has adequate height and a lean build. Looks to have a late-bloomers frame with room for growth. He really grows on you the more you watch him. Gets set quickly and gets rid of the ball very fast. Release is smooth, quick and compact; he doesn't waste any time and is very decisive in his reads. He will move around and buy more time with his feet when necessary. Shows good pocket presence, has a feel for the rush. Can throw the ball efficiently on the run. He has very good arm strength, delivery quickness may exaggerate it though. He will be able to make all the college-level throws. Shows good touch on the deep ball and can drop the ball in over coverage. His overall accuracy and timing are solid when his feet are set. He does a very good job of throwing from outside the pocket. He will make a lot of things happen after the initial play breaks down. Shows good vision and movement skills as a runner. Is competitive and tough. Richardson is a kid that has a release you cannot coach and if he can add bulk and strength to his frame over the coming years he could blossom into an entirely different player than he is now. We would be surprised if his recruitment does not heat up through the fall.

    "Richardson is a kid that has a release you cannot coach"


    ​Really was a thing of beauty last night.

    This is exactly why I look at the ESPN recruiting instead of the Rivals... the scouts for ESPN seem to actually scout a kid instead of just looking at their offer list and then give them stars.

    By the way ISU has 16 3* recruits from ESPN in this class and that is not counting our 2 JUCO recruits!

    I've never seen a more accurate scouting report. Do you have a name attached to that report?

    I really liked what I saw out of the kid, but I'm afraid if some on this board don't temper their expectations of a freshman quarterback, they'll be setting themselves up for a massive collapse.

    Usually espn scouting reports are so general or neutral that they can't be wrong haha. This one is actually pretty good.

    I'd probably personally hold off on it, being that all he did was beat a very bad Kansas team.

    I honestly think 'Sunshine' is a more appropriate nickname.

    IMO KU is a much better team than recent years. They did take Tech to OT last week

    If we're going to rip off "Johnny Football," let's go with Sammy Touchdown.

    Re: ESPN's 2010 scouting report on Richardson

    Great analysis by ESPN. SR's hs highlight videos from his junior and senior years showed an incredible major college prospect and I can't believe we stole him out of SEC/ACC country. Amazing how open our receivers looked last night when you have a qb with the ability to look off defenders and go to open receivers instead of constantly throwing into double coverage as Barnett and SJ often do. Yes it was Kansas, but an improving Kansas that's played some good football lately, and was off to a good prety good start last night until we kept scoring on them. It was an incredible performance for a rs freshman and as the game went on he was making it look easy. I'll try to temper my enthusiasm but it feels so good to finally see an ISU qb that may be the real deal.
