The Tennessee Vols are among five schools still in the mix for 2019 four-star athlete Mark-Antony Richards.
I want to thank all the schools who’ve given me the opportunity to chase my dreams at their schools and I can’t thank you all enough. With that being said, these are my final 5 schools in random order.

Richards, 6-foot/205 pounds from West Palm Beach, FL, is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 4 athlete in the nation and the No. 10 player in the state of Florida.
For now, it doesn’t appear that Tennessee is at the top of Richards’ list.
The Florida native, who could play running back or wide receiver on the offensive side of the ball (or a hybrid role), is scheduled to take official visits to Auburn and Miami this fall.
According to 247Sports, Richards isn’t planning to commit until sometime between November and February.
There’s no doubt the Vols would love to land the dynamic athlete (he runs a 4.46 40), but Jeremy Pruitt and his staff will have to work quite a bit of magic in the coming months to make it happen.
Tennessee’s 2019 recruiting class is currently ranked No. 14 in the nation with 18 commits.
