The 6-foot athlete out of Missouri City, Texas is ranked as the 173rd receiver in his recruiting class according to 247Sports.
Richardson helped lead Ridge Point to an 8-3 record and a playoff appearance in the 2019 season. Richardson posts 707 receiving yards, 191 rushing yards, and 11 touchdowns in his junior season.
If Richardson’s name sounds familiar, that’s because his father, Bucky, played quarterback at Texas A&M in the late 80s and early 90s. Bucky threw for 3,039 yards and 14 touchdowns in his college career before being drafted by the Houston Oilers.
Richardson is choosing OSU over programs like TCU, Ole Miss, Arkansas and more.
