03/30/18- Florida recruit. The right-handed pitcher is on the rise as he continues to improve since we saw him in the preseason. He has a very strong lower half and overall is very athletic. The arm action is compact in the back and shows some of the best hand speed in the country. The arm works clean and quick from a high 3/4 slot. The fastball ranged from 90-95 mph on the night, but pitched comfortably at 92-93 mph with late, riding life. The most impressive part about the outing is the improvement of not only one, but two breaking balls. First he showed the curveball, which we have seen in the past, has gotten much better. Thrown harder, with tighter spin and more depth at 74-78 mph. Then a new slider, that has tilt and late down action at 80-82 mph. While he mostly overpowered the lineup, he still induced 15 swing and misses on the fastball. Overall, the breaking ball improvement coupled with athleticism and hand speed have him on the rise.
2/17/18- Florida recruit. Lean, athletic frame with an extremely quick arm. The ball jumps out of his hand. Fastball mostly sat in the 90-94 mph range, touching 95 a couple times with life along with a 77-78 mph slider. During his second inning he also flashed an 84-86 mph changeup with fade which was impressive as he was able to throw it for strikes and produce some swings and misses on it. Gave up two early runs, but settled in during his second inning where he struck out the side. Struck out six in his two innings on the mound. Richardson looks to have added to his frame over the winter months and will be a high-follow this spring on draft boards.
04/25/17- Florida recruit. Richardson would come out in impressive fashion. He is athletic, with a short, quick arm action. He would work mostly in the 87-90 mph range with his fastball that showed late life with arm side run down in the zone at times. He would reach back when needed and touch 91 and 92 mph on occasion. He would also show two different breaking balls. A curveball that worked 71-74 mph with late, hard downward action that he would not only throw for strikes, but also throw as a swing and miss pitch. He also worked in a hard, sweeping slider at 77 mph. Richardson would carry Jensen Beach to the eight, giving up no runs on no hits while striking out eight in impressive fashion.
10/23/16- Florida recruit. Currently ranked No. 19 overall, came in relief for the Braves Scout Team/Warhawks and flashed premium present velocity with, it seems, more to dream on as he begins to fill into his lanky 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame. Working from a high-3/4 slot with a short, ultra-quick arm, Richardson sat 91-92 mph in the first inning, and settled in at 88-91 in the second inning. He also spun a tight 75-mph breaking ball with depth, which he consistently threw for strikes. With his arm speed, athleticism and high-ceiling frame, Richardson should continue to add velocity in coming years.
7/19/16- Committed to the University of Florida.

7/8/16- Uncommitted. No. 6 in Florida and No. 10 overall in the 2018 class the 6-foot-2 175-pounder showed a short quick arm action with his fastball ranging from 87-89 touching 90 mph. His curveball worked at 71-72 with depth. Athletic and projectable he worked quick, down in the zone to both sides of the plate. 
7/30/15- 6-foot-2 175 pounds with a lean, athletic, and projectable frame. Simple, repeatable delivery. Everything stays in line. Loose, compact, and over the top arm action. Uses his lower half well. 88-92 mph with late life and he pounds the zone. Switch hitter, strong swing from the LH side. Makes hard, loud contact. Line drive hitter to all parts of the field.
