Three-star offensive tackle Will Richardson committed to the Virginia Cavaliers back in May and looked like he would a back bone of a Virginia recruiting class that has has surprised many with it’s impressive list of commitments (that list includes the country’s #1 defensive tackle, Andrew Brown, who is already enrolled, the country’s #1 safety, Quin Blanding, talented four-star athlete Jamil Kamara and four-star offensive guard Steven Moss).
As of Monday evening, that list no longer includes Richardson.
Richardson committed to the North Carolina State Wolfpack, another recruiting class that has surprisingly good players committed (four-star defensive Kentavious Street and four-star quarterback Jalen McClendon stand out).
Richardson visited Virginia over the week and must have come away not as impressed as he’d hoped.
According to 24/7 Sports composite rankings, the 6’6, 305-pound Richardson is the 409th best player in the country, the 33rd best offensive tackle and the 16th best player in North Carolina.
Richardson attends Hugh M. Cummings High School in Burlington, North Carolina and chose the Wolfpack over the Cavaliers, Florida State Seminoles, North Carolina Tar Heels and Duke Blue Devils, among others.
