Westerville (Ohio) Central offensive tackle Nick Richardson is usually the biggest guy in the room at 6-foot-4, 280 pounds and the scary thing is he is only junior in high school (class of 2014). This past Friday night he played like one of the biggest players on the field as his team came back late on the road at New Albany to secure a 23-20 win in overtime.

Richardson is already catching the eye of colleges with offers from Cincinnati, Illinois and Toledo to date and it would be a safe bet to say that more colleges will be jumping in, especially now that the September 1st start date of contacting juniors has finally arrived on the calendar.

The thoughts of playing on Saturdays however seems like a million miles away with two years of high school left and Thomas Worthington high school standing in Central's way of getting to 3-0 on the season.

We caught up with Richardson after his game on Friday night to talk about his performance and touch upon where his mind is when it comes to recruiting, especially with schools like Ohio State and Wisconsin both showing more interest.
