As is the same with Coach Ferrigno, Coach Hecklinski has been making his nation wide recruiting trip, and yesterday one of his stops took place in Georgia at Woodward Academy to see 2016 LB prospect, and legacy recruit, Maximillian Richardson III. For short, and from what Max said, we will stick with Max Richardson III.
Before anything, it is important to note that his father, Max Richardson Jr. played at Michigan from 1974-1977 so he is indeed a legacy recruit.
Max comes in at 5’11 222lbs while being clocked at a 4.8 40 time, while he also noted that he is working to get the 40 time down.
Max is a smaller body at 5’11 but presents a rather strong frame while playing Middle Linebacker.
Max, among other things mentioned the following..
– Coach Hecklinski stopped by yesterday to extend an offer to camp this summer while also noting he was very interested in Max.
– Max has early intentions to visit Ann Arbor this summer with a group of his teammates.
– Max noted that he is highly intrigued by Michigan because of his father and LOVES Ann Arbor and the school itself.
– Max finished our conversation off by saying that if Michigan were to offer, they would instantly become his favorite.
From everything gathered, it seems as if Max is a fast rising prospect gaining more attention nationally each day. He is a kid with a strong mind and one who has a high acumen level for football knowledge. All things aside, Max is a talented prospect with all the room to grow and further groom himself as an elite prospect. If an offer comes it could very well occur this summer before his junior season. If Michigan does indeed offer Max, I would not feel as if I was venturing too far in saying that he could immediately commit to Michigan with hopes of following in his dad’s legacy and attending the school he loves. Once he visits, Max is a name we all should keep our eyes on, especially due to the fact that he is a legacy recruit and a very hard hitting linebacker.
