Arizona cornerback Shaquille Richardson is set to play in the East-West Shrine Game, which will be held Jan. 18 in St. Petersburg, Fla.
He could play in the secondary with Arizona State safety Alden Darby on the West squad. Northern Arizona running back Zach Bauman will play for the East squad, which features Heisman Trophy finalist Jordan Lynch at quarterback.
Richardson started 37 games in his Arizona career, including all 13 as a senior. He had three interceptions, seven pass break-ups and 55 tackles this season.
He was involved in the team’s play of the year, scooping a tipped pass back into play while falling out of bounds on the first snap of the game against Oregon. Linebacker Scooby Wright grabbed the ball for a tone-setting interception in the Wildcats’ 42-16 upset of the fifth-ranked Ducks.
Richardson said in a recent interview that the part of his game that needs the most work is tackling.
Richardson, who had 10 career interceptions at UA, is rated as a potential seventh-round selection by NFLDraftScout.com.
