Richard prepared to pull his weight at tight end

COLUMBIA — Clemson tight end Milan Richard joined teammates Hunter Renfrow and Richard Yeargin and head coach Dabo Swinney on Tuesday as part of a special presentation at the Statehouse in Columbia to honor the 2016 Clemson Tigers’ National Championship.

Afterwards, Richard spoke to the media about the experience at the capitol building as well as took a few questions on the tight battle this spring between him, Cannon Smith, Garrett Williams, D.J. Greenlee, Shadell Bell and J.C. Chalk.

One of the six will have to step up and replace record-setting tight end Jordan Leggett, who became the first Clemson tight end since Bennie Cunningham in 1974 and ’75 to earn back-to-back All-American honors.

Clemson begins spring practice this afternoon.
