Clemson lands four-star running back

The Clemson Tigers continue to move towards staying an ACC powerhouse with the addition of another playmaker on offense.

The team has landed four-star running back Cordarrian Richardson out of Memphis, Tennessee. The announcement came via Richardson’s high school head coach Teli White.

According to White, Richardson spent the weekend at Clemson, and was reportedly “blown away” by what he saw.

“The first thing he told me was it’s phenomenal,” White told 24/7 Sports. “The coaches, the players, the facilities, everything.”

At 5-11, 220 lbs., Richardson is a powerful running back, and is ranked as the country’s 85th-best prospect heading into college. He also becomes the second four-star player to commit to the Tigers after wide receiver Amari Rodgers committed to the school.

After the Tigers came close to being National Champions last season, the desire to get to the top of the mountain is even stronger. By adding players the caliber of Richardson, Clemson will continue to be mentioned alongside the College Football Playoff.
