Milan Richard, Calvary Day
MAKING A NAME FOR HIMSELF
THIS CLEMSON TIGHT END COMMIT MAY BE THE ONLY player on his team to have touched the Heisman Trophy. Milan Richard is the nephew of three-time All-American running back and former Georgia Bulldog Herschel Walker.
While his uncle’s alumni status had no impact on his decision,
Richard shares a lot of similar qualities with his relative.
He’s a player that goes to work every day and has strong hands,
confidence, strength and size. While Richard still has room to
improve on his blocking, route-running and fluidity, he is already
a player who shows a lot of upside. The area Richard finds most
appealing about Clemson is the offense.
“Clemson’s offense is one thing I like. It is explosive. I also like
the coaches there,” Richard told Scout.com.
Richard is one of the top 15 tight ends in the country, and his
offense should put up some big numbers in his senior season.
WHICH WAY WILL HE GO?
Stanley Williams made his share of twists and turns during his
recruitment process. And technically, it’s still not over, at least not
until National Signing Day next February.
Williams burst on to the scene during a camp in Athens the sum-
mer before his sophomore year, earning an offer from the Bulldogs
after running a 4. 26 40-yard dash. He committed on the spot.
His pledge to Georgia lasted a good while, through his sophomore
and junior seasons, but things appeared to change last spring. His
interest in schools like Clemson and Auburn picked up, as he took
visits to other campuses despite his alignment with Georgia. Then
in April, Williams declared he was no longer committed, opting
to look into all other options. Two months later, in June, Williams
surprised many when he committed to Kentucky.
Heading into his senior season at George Walton, the 5-8,
190-pound back appears to have everything regarding his next
step settled. His focus will turn to helping his high school squad,
coached by his father Don Williams, advance further than last
season’s semifinal appearance. Whether George Walton will be
in the hunt for the state title or if Williams ends up at Kentucky
will be determined.
If anything, though, Williams has shown he isn’t afraid to mix it up.
HUGE FISH IN A SMALL POND
You’re not going to miss Johnny Dwight when he walks into a
room, that’s for sure. The 6-foot- 3, 300-plus pound defensive line-
man is one of the biggest players in the state, especially in Class A.
He’s the man that keys everything for Wilcox County’s defense,
a player with good instincts and in-depth know-how for how to play
his position. He may play at one of the smaller (and most successful) schools in the state, but he’s use to large stages. The Patriots
have posted a 32-7 mark since Dwight’s freshmen year, reaching
the quarterfinals in 2012 when he was a junior.
This past summer, Dwight camped at Alabama, receiving an of-
fer from the staff after dominating the competition. He committed
to the Crimson Tide shortly thereafter, meaning the really big fish
in a small pond isn’t afraid to jump out of familiar water.
