The Pressbox reported that it was April of Lawrence Richardson’s senior year in high school when Morgan State “came out of the blue” to offer the linebacker a scholarship. Not just a scholarship, but a full scholarship.
Richardson hadn’t put on a football uniform until high school, and his days at Bishop McDevitt didn’t include many offers from high-profile schools.
“I really didn’t know if I was going to get a chance, I just prayed to God every night,” Richardson said. “Then this door opened up out of nowhere.”
The 6-1, 225-pound Richardson is coming off a 2021 season in which he was fifth in the conference with 6.8 tackles per game (68 total, 40 solo) and had 5.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions and a sack. As he heads into his junior year, the McDevitt graduate’s future at Morgan State looks bright.
