Former McGuinness star running back Dominic Richardson will not play for TCU

Dominic Richardson will not attend TCU in the fall. 

The former McGuinness star running back has been granted a release from his national letter of intent and can sign with any school, TCU coach Gary Patterson confirmed to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Wednesday.

Richardson is the No. 31-ranked running back nationally in the 2020 class, according to Rivals. He was No. 4 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30 rankings of the state’s top 2020 recruits. 

Richardson helped McGuinness reach the Class 5A state finals last season. He finished with 169 carries for 1,719 yards and 17 touchdowns. The three-star recruit also had 238 receiving yards and four scores. 

Richardson signed with TCU in December. 

Since then, the Horned Frogs have landed two elite prospects who play the same position. Kendre Miller of Mount Enterprise, Texas, signed with TCU in February. Zach Evans, a five-star prospect from Houston, enrolled at the school on May 11. 

Evans is the highest-rated recruit to ever sign with TCU.
