Sheldon Richardson reneges, commits to USC
Share |

BY VAHE GREGORIAN Posted: Thursday, November 11, 2010 2:41 pm


Prized Mizzou football recruit Sheldon Richardson said Thursday he has changed his commitment from MU to Southern California.

Richardson, from Gateway Tech, has spent the last two falls at College of the Sequoias in California after failing to qualify academically at Mizzou. He sat out all but two games this season with a wrist injury that he says he now has recovered from and did not require surgery.

Although Richardson attended MU's Oct. 23 win over then-BCS No. 1 Oklahoma and said "it felt like home," he committed to USC last weekend.

The main reason, he said, was his belief that USC and well-respected defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin would best prepare him for a transition to the NFL after just one season.

He said the fact USC won't be eligible for a bowl next year because of NCAA sanctions didn't bother him.

Richardson, considered a 5-star recruit out of high school, said he still plans to take other recruiting visits, most likely to Miami, California and Arizona State.

He was vague when asked whether he had told MU of his decision yet.

"Uh, back and forth. I'm going to call them later," he said. "It's kind of hard to tell them I'm not going there no more. Or I think I'm not going no more."

Asked if that meant there still was wiggle room in his decision-making, he said, "A little wiggle room."

They lost one game by one point and another by two. Oregon beat the shit out of them but they're sitting at 6-3 during a year that they were, by all accounts, supposed to suck.

As I stated last year, by 2012, they'll be in the Top 10 once again.

The Hollywood scene has absolutely NOTHING to do with 19 and 20 year old football players.

If he was sold on any "scene", it was Manhattan Beach, were a large contingent of USC students live and "play".

He's in JUCO because he could not qualify out of high school, and rumors have been going around that his JUCO studies have not been going great.

Honestly I'm surprisingly not that upset with his decommit (although I think the odds are decent that he recommits to Mizzou....he's a total headcase). Football isn't like basketball where one recruit can make or break a season.

And if SR is going into D1 football with the idea that he will play only one year and bolt to the NFL, he could wind up being a huge problem if he doesn't start immediately, we lose a couple games, he gets hurt, etc.

I definitely don't wish him luck though. I think it's BS when kids back out of solid commitments at the very end.

Never seen a kid who likes being recruited as much as Richardson. He still plans to visit Cal again and one other place, forget where. Maybe Florida state?

Missouri has been on this guy since he was a sophomore, even though it knew from the beginning he likely would not qualify out of HS. The cc coach had never had a "placement" sign with someone other than his original school. Crazy.

Kid is not smart. At all. His best act score out of HS was a 14. He either completely bought HHS line of bs orgeron and kiffin slung, or he is trying to get his fifth star back. Neither would surprise me.

Best DL in the nation?.......

Sheldon Richardson, the defensive line prospect from Gateway Tech, signed with Mizzou today, the latest step in a long recruiting path.

Richardson originally committed to the Tigers out of high school in 2009 but didn't qualify academically, so he went to College of the Sequoias in Visalia, Calif.

But a month ago, Richardson told the Post-Dispatch he had changed his mind from Mizzou and was going to sign instead with USC.

However, today, the first day junior college players can sign, he went back with the Tigers.

But one other issue has yet to be officially decided, and that is if he has cleared all the NCAA academic hurdles to be eligible.

Richardson told the Columbia Tribune on Tuesday that he was still awaiting test scores from his final exams in California.

Richardson, 6-4, 290, is rated by rivals.com as the nation's No. 3 juco prospect.

I saw earlier this morning an article by Matter saying Sheldon commented yesterday he had a tough choice between two schools tomorrow, which obviously caught USC way off guard because they thought they had a 5 star DT locked up and ready to go next year.

Bottom line, I think Sheldon just loved the recruiting attention. Also have to tip your cap to the Mizzou staff for keeping their emotions in check and not making public comments after Sheldon switched his commitment. They played it cool and it worked.

What a beastly D-line we are going to have next year. I bet Steck is doing backflips today.

I thought you were just goofing earlier, but are you really serious?

LMAO

You do realize that the bowl tie-ins shuffled this year, right? The Insight Bowl has the 3rd choice now in the Big 12 and is no longer the toilet bowl that it was when it picked ku as the 7th or 8th choice.

Mizzou has averaged 10 wins a season the last 4 years. ku might not win a total of 10 games for the next 4 years.

Why are you even taking the time to troll?

We were #6 in the country in defense this year, and will be adding a 5 star DT in Richardson, a 4 star DE in Ealy (have heard practice reports that he is Aldon Jr), a healthy Aldon, Bonner comes back, etc.

We're returning 8 of 11 starters, including our entire front 7.

False.

The Insight Bowl is bigger and better this year with the third pick from the Big 12 Conference and the third or fourth pick from the Big Ten Conference, after the BCS selections. These two conference face-off with hard-hitting action and rambunctious fans in attendance to support their teams. Annually held at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, the Insight Bowl will be televised on ESPN.

Meanwhile, when ku went they were the 7th choice in the B12 that year.

OU and UT - BCS
Tech - Cotton
Mizzou - Alamo
OSU - Holiday
Nebraska - Gator
ku - Insight

The point remains, the Insight is vastly superior to the toilet bowl it was when ku was invited to play in it. Remember when most people couldn't even watch it on tv because it was on the NFL Network? I LOL'd at the time.

And again, 40 wins (and counting) in the past 4 seasons. 6th straight bowl appearance. But keep grasping at any random straw you can find, it's funny watching you squirm.

At the college level, WRs tend to be ahead of CBs. I'll take our chances with a great front seven. If we can mix in some talented DBs, so much the better, but I won't lose too much sleep over it.

I got to wait and see so my teachers can process my grades, he said. It should be about a week-and-a-half, two weeks. I won't know officially until probably after Christmas.

Mizzou finished the regular season ranked #1 a few seasons ago. That wasn't the highest of highs, but it was closer than KU's football has ever been. It's all about where you finish, though. Unfortunately, MU finished 4th and KU finished 7th.

Speaking of where you finish, it's amusing that KU's football team never finished ahead of MU in the Big XII. Not once.

The new big 10 is being split into 2 divisions next year.

Ohio St and Michigan will be in separate divisions yet will continue to play every year. This creates an unbalanced schedule year in and year out for every team in that conference. Once you do that you have a hard time arguing that the sport is anything but a showcase of players for the nfl.

I have a great time at college football games. Beer, girls, the game....it's a great show. But to claim that all that goes on nowadays (Cam Newton, and now this guy just up and changing his recruiting commitment due to god knows what) is the same as what the nfl is, or baseball is (college and pro) or college basketball is...is laughable.

A championship decided by a single elimination tournament with a 3 point line that is little more than a glorified free throw from the corner isn't exactly infallible.

They targeted that position really hard in recruiting last year.

Tristen Holt is the best DB recruit Pinkel has gotten
EJ Gaines is a solid recruit, but I have no idea as to his potential
Daniel Easterly was an athlete who they converted to safety
Braylon Webb was another target.

4 DBs in one class is pretty heavy, and that doesn't factor in the return of Kip Edwards (who is, arguably, our best corner) or Kenji Jackson.

It's still going to be a weak point, but it's significantly better than it was 3-4 years ago

The DBs are important, but I think the success of this team is going to rise and fall based upon the play of the WRs. Sasser, Lucas, and Hunt have to bring an ability to get open on intermediate routes, because Kemp and Jackson were absolute shit this year.

We also need to hope that two of Demien, Gatti, and Britt can fill one of the guard spots (because Wuebbels and Palmgren are fucking horrible) and Barnes' center spot. The tackles, shit that they are, are entrenched.

The DBs are important, but I think the success of this team is going to rise and fall based upon the play of the WRs. Sasser, Lucas, and Hunt have to bring an ability to get open on intermediate routes, because Kemp and Jackson were absolute shit this year.

We also need to hope that two of Demien, Gatti, and Britt can fill one of the guard spots (because Wuebbels and Palmgren are ****ing horrible) and Barnes' center spot. The tackles, shit that they are, are entrenched.


The tackles are fine. They aren't perfect, but Hoch and Fisher are a well above average pair of college bookends.

Jackson could get open, but couldn't catch. Kemp simply didn't work hard enough often enough. Yeah, the WRs definitely need to step up. And I'd kill to see us get a RB that can do a little more between the tackles. Y'know, kinda like that Washington fellow we used to have.

I despise Elvis Fisher, but some of that is on me. It's a Safford level of hatred. The guy has a real ability to kill some drives. I wanted to plunge an icepick into his balls after the ISU game.

Gettis being gone is a definite plus. I thought that pick he made against Illinois was a sign that he turned the corner, but really he only improved from a shitload of fuck to an assload of fuck.

I'm used to getting my heart ripped out at the most inopportune moment, so no.

I do think that we finally will have a team that can go toe-to-toe with Texas and OU and not blink. I don't think we can beat those teams on the road, but I think we could possibly at a neutral site and definitely at Faurot.

We have Texas and Okie Lite at home according to this (http://www.fbschedules.com/ncaa-11/big-12/2011-missouri-tigers-football-schedule.php), but I don't know if that is accurate. There is one open date there during conference on 10/1, which makes me think that we'll be heading to Norman. That'll be a goddamned tough game.

If Gabbert goes pro MU's gonna have a hard time winning the Big12, they may win the North, since Nebraska is gone...but they'll lose to a south team in the championship game.

At least they'll be losing Murray, Madu, Beal, and one of their tackles. I also hope to fuck that Broyles decides to leave.

The schedule is already set. We are opening Big 12 play against OU on September 17th.

http://www.mutigers.com/sports/m-footbl/sched/miss-m-footbl-sched.html

I actually prefer it this way going forward. OU is traditionally the best team in the conference, and it would be much better to lose to them in September than in December (of course hopefully we beat them).

12-16-2010, 07:05 AM
Will be interesting next year, for sure. I think Oklahoma and Missouri will be the top two teams in the league. Finch is sick, and that offense will be damn good. They'll need some new faces to step up at DL and WR. I'm pretty sure Broyles will come out, which leaves them thin with playmakers after stills.

Missouri will need it's secondary to answer so
E questions/fill some holes. EJ Gaines played a lot as a true frosh, especially after Rutland got dinged. I've heard great things about Holt from camp, too.

I think the more aggressive playcalling Steckel displayed this year is a perfect complement to the dominant DL Missouri will have (especially if Smith returns).

I think Jimmy hunt's speed will add a missing element to the offense, which should be outstanding.

Going to be fun...

The only hole on our roster is a game-breaker at WR. We have several players that could fit the bill, but they are unproven. Other than that, I guess it's CB, but this is the most complete team (on paper) that Mizzou has ever put together.

This season isn't even over, and I already can't wait for next year. Glad we have a solid bball team to bridge the gap. Right now, Mizzou is one of the strongest programs in the country between bball and football. Feels good, man.

Interesting stuff.

● Last month, there was no contact between Richardson and Missouri's staff for 2 1/2 weeks after he reneged on his commitment and pledged to sign with USC. Having read the media reports about Richardson's change in plans, Ford called repeatedly, but Richardson never answered, never called back. "And thats not like him," Ford said. "He would always return a phone call. With that, I thought, Ok, this must be pretty serious. " Finally, they made contact, and Richardson admitted he had committed to the Trojans. The MU staff didn't back off. "You continue to recruit," Yost said. "Just like" USC "recruited him when he was committed to us, we continued to recruit him."

● First came a long phone call between Ford and Richardson, a talk that Ford said was 2 hours long. And Ford didn't call to beg. "I hammered him," Ford said. "I spit it out exactly the way I felt. He sat and listened. And I respect him for that." Ford had known Richardson's parents for nearly 10 years - MU recruited their older son, Shaun - and Ford was well aware that Richardson's choice of USC didn't sit well with his parents, especially his mother, Zelda, who doesn't fly. "Moms not flying anywhere," Ford said. "And mom will tell you that. Mom told him that on more than one occasion. Thats not happening. So, I knew mom wasnt happy." Hence, the hammering.

From there, some powerful and candid stuff from Ford: "I hammered him about treating people the right way. I dont think he treated the people inside his circle ... I tell him, Dude, Im just looking at this from the outside. Youre not doing it the right way. Regardless where you go from here, you still treat people right. I know hes a good kid, but what I saw, I wasnt happy with. And I told him that. Everybody needs that one person, or two or three, usually thats mom or dad or brothers or sisters, who can sit down when youre not doing things the right way and straighten you out. Id like to think Im close enough to him that I can be up front with him."

Eventually, Ford headed west and visited with Richardson in person in California. Shortly thereafter, Richardson called Gary Pinkel and reaffirmed his commitment.

Probably more wishful thinking then anything. I honestly don't think either one is ready for the NFL and they would benefit from another year in college. I'm banking on Pinkel and his staff giving them good advice and convincing them both to stay. I could easily be way off base but I don't think I am. :)

I was happy to see that the AP put Gachkar on their All-Big 12 team. Gooden was good this year, and has the potential to be great, but Gachkar was our best LB. Gachkar is supposed to physically test off the charts. It will be interesting to see if his combine/pro day can push him into the draft.

I think the most obvious improvement for MU next year will be at a WR. This year we had one quick WR that could catch anything with good quickness but not fantastic speed (Moe), one TE/WR with great hands and again not game-breaking speed (Egnew), a WR with the speed but no consistency (J. Jackson), and a WR that can block, catch, but can't get open all that often (Kemp).

Next season Hunt, Sasser, and Lucas are all going to be forcing their way onto the field. Those three are going to be great before they are done at Mizzou. Can't wait.

I think the most lekely scenario is that they both come back. Smith had the injury, and Gabbert isn't ready. He's a third rounder at this point. His workouts might push him into the econd, but that would still cost him $20 million versus being top ten next year. Factor in the labor issues, and they should both be back.

No doubt. I think the uncertainty from a potential work stoppage could really benefit us though. Underclassmen will have to declare before the NFL labor situation is settled, and I can see less players declaring this year than in a normal year.

I think Gabbert comps well to Joe Flacco though, and I can definitely see him getting a mid/late 1st round grade from the NFL. We'll see.
