Chris Parker was Richardson's host this weekend and he said the two hit-it-off, great.
"We're like the same type of people and I had a lot of fun hanging out with him and the team," Richardson said.
Asked when he decided to give Tech his verbal, Richardson said, "Coach Mike Leach asked me if I was ready to do it Saturday night and I asked him to give me until Sunday. Today, I was like Texas Tech is it. This is me right here. And so I committed."
Richardson's message to Red Raider fans: "I'm excited to be a Red Raider and I can't wait to get down there."
