Tavin Richardson is one of the top 2015 prospects in South Carolina. The Byrnes High (Duncan, S.C.) standout is continuing to attract interest from some of the top college football programs in the country.

Last fall, Tavin Richardson was one of the few freshmen who started for an elite high school varsity football program. Now a sophomore, Richardson is a veteran and has helped Byrnes get off to a 2-0 start.

“This season is going good,” said Richardson. “Since last season, I’ve gotten faster, stronger, and become a better blocker."

“We have our first home game this week against the No. 2 team in the state, Northwestern. It should be a good matchup.”

Not surprisingly, college football programs are showing serious interest in the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Richardson.

“Last week, I heard from Virginia Tech, Georgia, Clemson, and South Carolina,” he said. “I still think Virginia Tech will be the first to offer. I would like to hear from Auburn, North Carolina, and Tennessee

Now that football season is here, Richardson is looking forward to taking some college visits.

“I should be going to Virginia Tech when the play Duke (October 13),” he said. “I also think I’m going to games at Clemson, South Carolina, and Georgia.”

While Richardson’s recruitment will continue to gain momentum, his main focus is his season at Byrnes.

“We are trying to go undefeated and win the state championship again,” Richardson said.

Byrnes is ranked No. 14 in the FOX Sports Next Top 50.
