Purdue continues to build a pipeline to in state schools for offensive lineman.

Richards joins his teammate Jaelin, from Mooresville HS to come to Purdue.

Richards projects as an interior offensive lineman, which is a part of the offensive line that Purdue continues to try and bolster - which is a dire need on this roster.

Richards has very good feet and does a nice job of getting up to the second level on run blocking.

Richards breaks the mold a bit of a Purdue Offensive Line Recruit, similar to HArtwig last year, they are not super lean, like in years past.

They have bodies that are ready to come in and compete right away.
