On Sunday afternoon, four-star athlete Mark Richards announced his top five schools. The West Palm Beach, Florida native included the Tennessee Volunteers on his list, along with Florida, Auburn, Penn State and Miami.

Richards noted in his announcement that these five schools were his final five choices.
The 6-0, 205 pound athlete is the younger brother of Miami receiver Ahmmon Richards. That connection is likely one of the reasons why the Hurricanes hold a big lead in 247’s crystal ball projections. Miami is seven for seven right now in the projections.
