    Richard is an impressive 6-foot-1, 190-pound athlete who won player-of-the-year honors in both the Southwestern Athletic Conference and Texas Collegiate League last year. He didn't perform as well this spring, as his righthanded swing got longer and he rarely altered his dead-pull approach. He has plus speed, power potential and arm strength, but he needs polish in all aspects of the game. He should be able to remain in center field at the next level, though he often has to rely on his quickness to overcome bad routes on fly balls.
