ESPNâ€™s recruiting experts have a profile up of Alabamaâ€™s recent RB commitment Trent Richardson (Escambia High School of Pensacola, FL). Richardson talks about football and his family.
“We as a family never had much growing up,” Richardson said. “My mom [Katrina] always told me when you get an opportunity in life to take it and that’s what I’m trying to do. I’m trying to make something of my life with football and be the first person to make it big out of Pensacola in awhile.”
The evaluation of Richardson as a player is also instructive. He is described as a â€œviolent runnerâ€ that has a â€œrare blend of speed and power.â€
