Aggies down to single scholarship RB as Texas A&M tailback enters NCAA transfer portal
Texas A&M appears to be losing some running back depth for the 2020 season.
According to Matt Zenitz of AL.com, Aggies running back Cordarrian Richardson has entered the NCAA transfer portal. That means coaches from other schools can start conversations with Richardson about potentially transferring to their school.
With the news, Texas A&M will now have only one scholarship running back on its roster. However, the Aggies have signed a pair of running backs in their 2020 recruiting class. Neither has arrived on campus yet, though.
Richardson rushed for 232 yards and four touchdowns this past year as a sophomore for Texas A&M. He sat out the 2018 season after transferring to the Aggies from UCF.
In 2017, Richardson rushed for 161 yards and two touchdowns in his lone season at UCF.
Richardson played in 10 games for Texas A&M this past season, making two starts. His best performance came on Nov. 16 against South Carolina, when he rushed for 130 yards and a touchdown and also had a receiving score.
Richardson is a former 4-star recruit out of Memphis, as he had tremendous success during his time at Trezevant High School.
