RB who committed to Maryland with space video signs with UCF

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Central Florida has signed running back Cordarrian Richardson, who had committed to Maryland on signing day with a video of him sending a camera into space on a weather balloon.

Richardson was a surprising addition to Maryland's class when he picked the Terrapins over Michigan State, Mississippi and Oklahoma in his video produced by Bleacher Report. Or so it seemed.

On Thursday, UCF coach Scott Frost announced on his Twitter account that Richardson had signed with the Knights .

''Welcome to the family, Cordarrian,'' the tweet read, with the hashtag (hash)OTownBound17.

Richardson, from Memphis, Tennessee, is not listed among Maryland's official list of signees.
