The Arkansas Razorback football team has added Kevin Richardson to the roster.  Read “Kevin Richardson Opts for Razorbacks” to learn more about him making the roster.  When you see his highlights film, you will understand why the coaches at the University of Arkansas believe Richardson has the potential to be a star for the Razorbacks.  At Jacksonville High School in Jacksonville, Arkansas, Richardson played wide receiver, quarterback, safety, punt returner, kick returner, and running back.  He has legitimate triple-threat talent; that is, he can make an impact on offense, defense, and special teams.  In the SEC, the competition is fierce and continues to get better each year.  For the Arkansas Razorbacks to have success, the team will need special players like Richardson.

Kevin Richardson is a gifted football player and a quality walk-on recruit for the Razorbacks.  He’s a great team player, has great character, and good grades.  This young man will have a positive impact on and off the field.

Revolutionary Paideia was the first media source to advocate for the Arkansas Razorbacks to recruit Kevin Richardson.  Through the efforts of Revolutionary Paideia, Richardson received strong support from former players, many Razorback fans, and Arkansas sports reporters, including leading Arkansas recruiting reporter Richard Davenport, and this strong support helped bring Richardson to the attention of Razorback football coaches.

Although Richardson got a late start in getting his recruitment materials out, he did not let his dream of being a Razorback end.  Because he continued to work tirelessly to prove himself to Razorback coaches, he earned a spot on the roster.

His mother, Sanci Richardson, and older brother, Airic Hughes, devoted significant time and effort to advocating for Kevin to be recruited by the Razorbacks; their efforts paid off too.  Kevin comes from a highly supportive and great family.  At the University of Arkansas, I taught and mentored Airic Hughes, a graduate student and scholar in History at the University of Arkansas.  Hughes is also a University of Arkansas alum and staff member and great student.
