As a sophomore, Richard had 27 catches for 400 yards and 5 touchdowns. As a junior, he caught 22 passes for 341 yards and scored 3 touchdowns. He is the nephew of University of Georgia great, Herschel Walker.

We saw Richard at last year's Dabo Swinney camp and came across impressed by his frame and the size that he could grow into at the college level. He just looks like a big-time play maker for Clemson's offense in the coming years.

Mickey Plyler on Richard: "Clemson didn't get Herschel Walker in 1980, but it did get his nephew in 2014. Danny Pearman has helped turn Clemson into Tight End U as of late and Chad Morris loves matching up his tight ends on a linebacker in coverage. Richard played at a small high school, but he held up well against better competition in the all-star games and in camps. This is what you look for when you draw up a tight end. Richard has everything you are looking for at tight end."
