Utah football: American Fork OL Michael Richardson commits to Utes for 2017

After a week that saw the University of Utah football coaching staff travel around the country visiting various prospects, the Utes got a commitment from a player in their own backyard.

American Fork offensive lineman Michael Richardson announced his pledge via Twitter on Sunday night.

At 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds, Richardson chose Utah over BYU and a number of Pac-12 programs, among others.

Richardson helped lead the Cavemen to an appearance in the 5A semifinals this fall. He becomes the sixth player to commit to the Utes as part of the Class of 2017.

He did not respond to a request seeking additional comment.
