Maybe this is as good as it gets for WR Mark Richards, who had been serenaded last week by offers from the Big Five led by Ohio State University. If WR Mark Richards were a girl, he would have walked on a red carpet of rose petals. That's how intense the courtship was as Ohio State went on a recruiting offensive for the football season.
If WR Mark Richards bites the bait planted for him, he may be in for more. But as it is right now, the 4-star 2019 class member appears to be playing hard to get and enjoying Ohio's courtship dance in an almost noncommittal fashion.
It's a great strategy for WR Mark Richards because it seems to be working. The Buckeyes negotiators just might have to put more on the table. After all, the brother of wide out Ahmmon Richards could swing the Hurricanes way.
WR Mark Richards, a six-footer weighing 184 pounds is also sought after by Miami, Florida, Auburn, and Louisville. In perfect shape and ripe for the picking, who's to say WR Mark Richards is going with? For one, the Twister team could blow him out towards the Sunshine State just like his brother.
And that would be home sweet home since WR Mark Richards hails from West Palm Beach, Florida in the closely-knit Wellington, a village which has just a little over 60,000 residents. Closer to home never fails to work out a charm especially in between football games.
Ohio State also made attractive offers to four other top prospects, namely, LB King Mwikuta, WR Kobe Hudson, ATH Arik Gilbert, and ATH Cartavious Bigsby. But as everyone knows, WR Mark Richards is on top of Ohio's wish list.
