PBR: Why did you choose the school you did?

Richter: I chose North Alabama because I really liked the coaches and how they showed a lot of interest in me. They seem to be committed to there players. I also think that this will be the best place for me to keep developing. 

PBR: What other schools were you considering?

Richter: Xavier and Stetson 

PBR: Where did the coaching staff first see you? How did your relationship develop with him?

Richter: The coaches first saw me play down in Georgia. Right after I played down in Alabama, they called me and showed interest and since then we have kept in touch. After that I realized that I have built a good relationship with the coaches which helped me when I made my decision 

PBR: Do you feel relieved now that the process is over and you can just focus on baseball and not deal with everything that goes into picking a school?

Richter: Yes, I do feel relieved because I can just focus on developing and training and not having to worry about what school I want to go to. 

PBR: Was there one deciding factor that put your choice over the top?

Richter: For sure the coaches. Also, the throwing and lifting programs that they do with the pitchers. 

PBR: Who has helped you the most to get to where you are today?

Richter: I would say both my mom and my dad. My mom has always been there to support me at games. My dad helped me through this process of figuring out which school would be the best fit for me. Also, Justin Musil for helping me get in contact with different coaches which really helped. 

PBR: What were your expectations about the recruiting process? Was it easy/difficult?

Richter: I knew that this process would be difficult because I knew I would have to work super hard in order to get a lot of interest from schools, but I am happy with my decision at the end of the day. 

PBR: What plans does the coaching staff have in store for you in your freshman season?

Richter: They want me to come in right away as a freshman to compete for a reliever spot on the team 

PBR: What is your most memorable baseball moment to date?

Richter: Winning a big tournament down in Alabama with Team Elite. 

PBR: Who is the best player that you have competed against?

Richter: I played against a lot of top-level talent this last summer but the best player I have played against from MN is Mac Horvath.
