Vols continue roll with Richardson
By Chris Low
It's been a successful close to the recruiting period for Tennessee, which continued its roll Wednesday and kept ESPNU 150 selection Antonio Richardson at home.
Richardson, ranked by ESPN as the No. 8 offensive tackle in the country, is the fourth straight highly rated prospect the Vols have landed in less than 48 hours. He's a Nashville, Tenn., product, so keeping those top-rated guys at home is critical. The Vols also got a commitment from tight end Cameron Clear of Memphis on Tuesday.
The Vols have moved up to No. 18 nationally in the class rankings. The Vols were No. 23 coming into national signing day. They're still waiting on the signature from ESPNU 150 linebacker Curt Maggitt, who said Tuesday night he would sign with the Vols.
Auburn has also moved up two spots to No. 6 nationally in the updated rankings.
