The absence of announcements from Texas A&M junior safety Demani Richardson made us all hope to return to his senior season, and in an interview with Billy Liucci of Texags published on Thursday, Richardson removed all doubts. LET’S GO BACK!
Richardson was designed as an option in the final round of the NFL draft in 2022, so the return should give him a valuable opportunity to maximize his draft stocks for 2023. And from an A&M perspective, his return for the senior season could bring huge dividends. the Aggies’ defenses have been losing some major contributors since 2021, including all of the starting top four, linebacker Aaron Hansford and security Leon O’Neal. Especially after breaking the new defense coordinator with DJ Durkin, the continuity that Richardson can bring as a fourth-year starter and the presence of a veteran cannot be overestimated. Especially with what might now be the best Texas secondary A&M in recent memory, when Richardson joined other budding Jaylon Jones, Antonio Johnson and Tyreek Chappell.
Richardson was only the third 2019 class recruit to commit to play Jimbo Fisher, less than three months after he was hired. During his three seasons at Aggieland, Richardson has 172 games, three interceptions, six breaks and 2.5 sacks (2 of them in 2021).
