TCU Football is losing two significant offensive contributors this year, as both Darius Anderson and Sewo Olonilua are now Horned Frog alums. Charged with replacing them will be a host of talented young backs, including 2020 signee Dominic Richardson.

Richardson, a three star running back out of Oklahoma City certainly looks the part of an elite runner; standing 6’ the powerful Richardson is known for picking up tough yardage as an exceptional north-south player. With offers from 12 schools, including Texas, Arkansas, Colorado, and Iowa State, the top ten prospect in the Sooner state projects as a future starter that will improve with added mass and top-end speed.

Consider one of the state’s most dominant players, Richardson led Bishop McGuinness to a state title game on his way to offensive player of the year status in his division. The talented athlete played running back, quarterback, and wide receiver for his team, showcasing his elite athleticism and team-first attitude.

After overcoming a gruesome ankle injury suffered his sophomore year, Richardson finished his high school career as one of the best in the state. He now joins a TCU running back room that features freshmen Darwin Barlow and Daimarqua Foster, as well as rising senior Emari Demercado. He has a chance to see the field right away as a true freshman, though the Frogs will look to preserve his redshirt if possible, as they did for Barlow and Foster. He is the only running back to sign so far 2020 and one of three offensive standouts from Oklahoma.
