Richards checked in at six-foot-five and seven-eights, 332 pounds, recording 22 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press and 27-inch vertical.

Richards used his redshirt year in 2017 to fine-tune his body for the final season of NCAA eligibility in 2018. He started two games at right guard and three at right tackle for the Cowboys last season – including his first career start in the season-opener against Missouri State.

After being named a Calgary high school all-star three times at Crescent Heights, Richards attended New Mexico Military junior college. Richards chose Oklahoma State over other scholarship offers from Southern Mississippi, Troy and Akron and saw some action as a junior for the Cowboys in 2016.

Richards is ranked second on the CFL top 20 scouting bureau list.
