Antonio Richardson, a four-star offensive tackle from Tennessee, has announced his decision to sign with the Tennessee Volunteers over the Georgia Bulldogs from his high school in Nashville. He’s rated as the top prospect in the state, the nation’s No. 7 offensive tackle, and the No. 74 prospect in the nation.
Richardson also listed Auburn and Miami among his finalists alongside Tennessee and UGA. He visited Auburn and Georgia within the past two weeks, with the visit to the Plains the most recent. Six-foot-six and 310 pounds, he’s added to a very strong day for the Vols that also includes Lamar Dawson, the top player from Kentucky.
That’s two misses for Georgia today, after Jeoffrey Pagan surprisingly picked the Alabama Crimson Tide over the Dawgs. Still up are Isaiah Crowell and Kent Turene. Turene is scheduled to announce any minute now, while Crowell won’t announce until 1:30 pm ET, live on ESPNU.
