It appears that Texas A&M has a talented backfield weapon on the way.
According to 247sports, former 4-star running back Cordarrian Richardson is on Texas A&M’s campus and he’s scheduled to begin classes on Monday. Richardson transferred to Texas A&M from UCF, which means he’ll have to sit out the 2018 season.
Richardson will have 3 years of eligibility remaining after he sits in 2018 because of NCAA transfer rules.
Once the No. 9 running back recruit in the 2017 class, the former UCF running back left Orlando after some back and forth about whether he was going to stay in the program. The former Mr. Football in the state of Tennessee was originally committed to Clemson but ended up enrolling at UCF after he dealt with academic issues.
The 6-0, 240-pound tailback appeared in 9 games as a true freshman and racked up 161 yards and 2 touchdowns.
He’ll have a chance to make an immediate impact at Texas A&M with Trayveon Williams and Kendall Bussey as seniors in 2019.
