"UCLA just offered," said Richey. "You have no clue how stoked I am. It was out of the blue."
Richey had been watching UCLA this season, with former Wolverine teammate Myles Jack playing for the Bruins and a couple of other former Wolverines being walk-on's to the Bruins.
But he didn't even know he was on he Bruins' radar.
"I talked to Coach (Steve) Broussard and he said I would talk to Coach (Adrian) Klemm and Coach (Jim) Mora soon," said Richey. "This was the first time I'd really talked to them. I had visited there my sophomore year just for fun, but I'll go down again now."
A number of other Pac-12 schools, including both in-state schools, have been talking with Richey and he hopes this offer could send more Pac-12 offers his way.
"I've been in touch but now hopefully they do offer," said Richey.
Despite the first Pac-12 offer, Richey isn't in a rush to commit anywhere.
"I'm definitely going to take my time and I need to get down to UCLA first," said Richey.
Richey is a three-year starter for the Wolverines, the top team in Washington, and has helped them win the last two state titles, and has yet to lose a high school football game.
