Richardson: "This is Why I Committed"
Posted Sep 11, 2011

Detroit Cass Tech (Mich.) cornerback Terry Richardson watched his future squad pull off a last second win against Notre Dame on Saturday and spoke to Scout about it.

As the decibel levels in Michigan Stadium rose yesterday, the Michigan commitments, including cornerback Terry Richardson, seated in the stands couldn't help but imagine being out there next year.

"This is why I committed," he said. "This is why I set my plans to Michigan. It's a great university. We have to come here and try to carry on the big time tradition."

Richardson was nearly at a loss for words following the game, saying, "Man, it was crazy. Play by play, it was just the best. Like I said, it was the reason we committed."

The 5'9, 165-lb Richardson, whose Cass Tech team is 2-1, paid close attention to the secondary that he will step into next year.

"They played pretty well," he explained. "There's still a little more work to do, but that's why I committed. I'm trying to step in and help out."

Of course, Cass Tech has had a recent run of players going to Ann Arbor, and Richardson was happy to see the alums doing well last night.

"Will Campbell and Thomas Gordon came in there and made big time plays and when me and Royce get in, we're going to make big time plays to carry on that tradition as well."

Richardson and the Technicians take on Detroit Cody this week.
