PULLMAN – Washington State added a linebacker with experience playing at the college level on Thursday when Dymund Richardson from El Camino College committed to the Cougars.
The news of Richardson’s commitment was first reported by Cougfan.com, and seemingly confirmed when Richardson retweeted the report from his private Twitter account.
He is the younger brother of Seahawks wide receiver Paul Richardson, who starred in college at Colorado.
Because Richardson was a full academic qualifier out of high school, he has the option to join WSU this summer and enroll with three years of on-field eligibility in addition to a possible redshirt year. It is believed he will exercise this option and be eligible to play for the Cougars in 2017.
Richardson is listed at 6-foot-4, 215-pounds and had 15 tackles for El Camino as a freshman backup linebacker last fall. He chose the Cougars over scholarship offers from Nevada, Purdue, and San Jose State.
