Tom Herman and company have once again swooped into Sooner territory, this time in pursuit of a prospect already pledged elsewhere, as Oklahoma City (Okla.) Bishop McGuinness running back Dominic Richardson announced an offer from the Texas Longhorns on Saturday.
After garnering an offer from the Horns, Richardson now has 12 respective programs calling for his services, but landing the three-star running back will be a tough task at this point in time for any school. Over a week ago, the TCU Horned Frogs landed six of their seven verbal commitments and Richardson just so happened to be one of those recruits, as his pledge came on the heels of his May 3 official visit to Fort Worth.
Just weeks earlier, Arkansas was considered the team to beat, with Richardson naming the Razorbacks as his outright leader in mid-April.
As far as Texas is concerned, Richardson has visited the Forty Acres in the past, so there could be mutual interest after this offer that may potentially lead to the OKPreps standout making another trip to Austin in the future.
Texas has now offered 12 running backs in this current recruiting cycle, with their main focus still being the nation’s No. 1 prospect, Houston North Shore’s Zachary Evans.
Richardson is ranked as the nation’s No. 606 player overall, as the No. 44 running back, and as the No. 7 prospect in Oklahoma, per the 247Sports Composite.
