Richardson, who was a three-star prospect out of Klein, was named to the Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-American team after recording 69 tackles, three tackles for loss, two sacks, and three forced fumbles.
The Aggies didn’t play last season due to COVID-19, leaving Richardson with three years of eligibility remaining and should make an immediate impact at Texas.
At 6’3 and 233 pounds, Richardson played outside linebacker but is versatile enough to where he could play at inside linebacker if asked.
Richardson is the third player to transfer to Texas this year, joining LSU’s Ray Thorton and Notre Dame grad transfer Ovie Oghoufo.
