A.J. Richardson already had an offer from San Diego State and recently added one from Houston that came as a complete surprise.
The Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne wide receiver was not talking to Houston's coaching staff but they got a hold of his junior season highlight tape and jumped on board.
Richardson, a three-star prospect who finished with 63 receptions for 947 yards and nine touchdowns in his junior season, said he knows Houston throws the ball a lot and he's definitely interested in learning more.

"It was kind of a surprise," Richardson said.
"It was very, very surprising but I was very thankful. One of my old coaches that I work out with told them about me and they wanted to offer me. I guess he sent them my highlight tape and it just happened. They throw the ball a lot."
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect was expected to visit San Diego State this past weekend for its spring game but Richardson didn't go because of bad weather.
The Aztecs' coaching staff has been coming hard after Richardson and he's expected to visit sometime soon.
"I was going to go to their spring game (Saturday) but it was raining so I think I'll go out there another time," Richardson said.
"They've been asking me when I'm coming out there and Saturday was a perfect opportunity to but the weather changed everything."
Richardson, who has been hearing from Arizona State, UCLA, USC, Oregon, Boise State and others, will be playing with B2G in the New Level Athletics Elite 7-on-7 in Las Vegas this weekend.
