Richardson is considered one of the top 100 offensive tackles in the country and is considered a ‘3-star’ recruit from Scout.com.
Richardson was previously committed to Virginia, where he spent this past weekend on his official visit; prior to his pledge to the Cavaliers, Richardson had scholarship offers from Florida State, Virginia Tech, Louisville, East Carolina, Duke and others.
Before Richardson’s commitment the Wolfpack’s 2014 recruiting class was ranked #26 in the country by Rivals.com; #33 by 24/7 Sports; and #18 by Scout.com.
