Trey Richardson knows where he’s going to school in the fall, so do thousands of other people thanks to his creative decision video.
No, Richardson is not a five-star recruit from whom the public might expect an elaborate college announcement.
He’s an incoming freshman with plans to major in engineering.
Richardson, who attends the Scholars Academy in Horry County, was choosing between six schools; Yale, Harvard, North Carolina State, Clemson, Auburn and Vanderbilt.
The three and a half minute video walks viewers through a Rube Goldberg Machine before revealing Richardson’s choice – Clemson University – at the end.
Rube Goldberg was an American cartoonist and engineer whose comic strip drawings of unnecessary elaborate machines earned him notoriety and inspired the classic game Mouse Trap.
