Hutchinson (Kans.) Community College defensive end Gabe Richardson committed to Arkansas on Wednesday.
Richardson is 6-foot-4, 240 pounds and projects to play outside linebacker in the Razorbacks’ 3-4 scheme. He unofficially visited Arkansas in January. He chose the Razorbacks over Buffalo. At Hutchinson last season, he had 60 tackles and 6 sacks. He also had 18.5 tackles for loss.
The expectation is that Richardson will blueshirt at Arkansas, meaning his scholarship will be delayed until one opens from the 85 total in the fall or following semester.
Richardson was recruited by Duke, Iowa State and others out of Southwest DeKalb High School (Decatur, Ga.) as a 2-star athlete in 2015 before failing to qualify.
