    Nice article on new commit Sam Richardson

    Sorry if already posted, but nice article on Sam Richardson from tehe Galveston Daily News.

    "Richardson's competitiveness, athleticism and foot speed set him apart, Spring coach Clint Harman said."

    "In 24 games as a varsity starter, Richardson has surrendered one touchdown to a receiver he covered. That number is especially impressive considering the Chargers often let Richardson play man-to-man."

    The 40 inch vertical is good for blocking kicks.

    Most impressive lines of the article:

    It helps Richardsonís vertical is probably somewhere around 40 inches. He can dunk a basketball

    Holy crap. 17 blocked kicks, 5'7" and can dunk, only 1 TD given up? Dude sounds like a freak. Only drawback is if he would have to cover someone much taller - 6'5" something like that.

    I'm not too worried, if he can dunk he has the ups to get up and contest the pass.

    Re: Nice article on new commit Sam Richardson

    Back to Sam, his talent is legit, his height is definitely keeping big time offers away from him. If he had same cover skills and was 6'-1" he would be highly rated and probably a Texas Commit....

    Darrell Green made a famous quote a long time ago to a reporter about his height.

    "The only time height helps a DB is when the receiver has gotten past him. Its easy, don't let him get past you."

    Its not like the staff is plucking this nobody, Sam is considered by many to be a top 20 corner in the state of texas. Additionally, Kyle Boyd is listed as a top 25 inside linebacker....i think both players are quality recruits and will be 2-3 stars when evaluated.

    While I think Green undervalued height I'm excited for this commit.

    “You better not teach Sam the wrong thing,” Hartman said. “Because he’s going to do exactly what you tell him.”

    Oh Wally is going to enjoy this.
