Milan Richard commits to Clemson: Tigers add star tight end recruit

SB Nation Recruiting

Clemson adds the nephew of Herschel Walker.

Milan Richard, the nephew of Herschel Walker, committed to Clemson Wednesday according to multiple reports. Richard, a tight end, plays for Savannah (Ga.) Calvary Day School. Calvary is a small school in Georgia's 1A football classification, but it has produced top recruits before, including former Georgia Bulldog Demarcus Dobbs.

Richard is rated as a four-star by some services, and a three-star by others. He is 6'2 and 232 pounds. He chose Clemson over South Carolina, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt.

I first spoke with Richard for SB Nation in June of 2012.

"I am working on my footwork everyday to get in and out of cuts," Richard said. It is refreshing to see a recruit realize what he must improve in his game. Richard's footwork does indeed need work. He's high cut, and more fast than quick. Seeing that tight ends rarely run 40 yards, being quick and getting open in small spaces is more important. Richard's stock will rise as his feet continue to improve.

I recently saw Richard again, and the footwork continues to be an issue. Physically, however, Richard looks like a beast, could be a strong blocker and is a candidate to get down field.
