“Adrial will be attending Univ of Guelph in 2014, … Adrial demonstrated in the ABC Border Bowl last May that he was and would be one of the country’s top receiver prospects.”

Richards was the first player to commit to the Gryphons in the 2014 recruiting cycle. This story is from shortly after he committed last spring. CanadaFootballChat: Richards enters the lair

“I have verbally committed to the University of Guelph.”

“I wanted to get a good grasp of the school environment, view their academic offerings, meet the team and build relationships with the coaches and staff,” said Malik.

Malik points to former Panthers head coach Ian Smith and long-time friend Jadon Johnson for helping him to become the player he is today. “It means a lot to be ranked as a Top 100 recruit by CFC because I can finally see my hard work and talent paying off.”
