Dymund Richardson, an outside linebacker prospect from El Camino (Calif.) College, has verbally committed to play at Washington State, according to a report by Cougfan.com.

Richardson was offered by the WSU coaching staff just two weeks ago and also held offers from Purdue, Nevada and San Jose State. A full qualifier out of high school, Richardson will be able to join the Cougars this summer with four years to play three.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder played his high school football at Santa Monica High School in Rancho Dominguez, Calif., though was lightly recruited and went the JUCO route.

His freshman stats won’t exactly wow you — 15 tackles, one tackle-for-loss and a forced fumble as a backup — but the WSU coaching staff clearly saw enough potential in the physically ready Richardson. He played a hybrid, safety-linebacker role at El Camino and would fit in nicely at the RUSH linebacker position in Alex Grinch’s defense.

Richardson’s verbal wraps up the 2017 recruiting class, as one scholarship was open due to Dontae Powell and Kelle Sanders failing to qualify. Nice late addition for WSU and a nice connection if you’re also a Seahawks fan:
