Miami WR Ahmmon Richards was the jewel of the 2016 recruiting class. He picked Miami over Alabama on National Signing Day, and he immediately set his sights on becoming one of the greatest players to wear the Orange and Green.

Miami has had many great WRs in program history, but no freshman has had a better season than Michael Irvin did in 1985. In his freshman year, Irvin caught 46 passes for 840 yards and 9 TDs.

Playing in just his 11th college game, Richards broke Michael Irvin’s freshman receiving yardage record, going from 839 yards to 849 with a 10-yard catch in the 3rd quarter against North Carolina State on Saturday afternoon.

Richards is a stud. An absolute star in the making right before our eyes. I’m so glad he’s on my team. Here is a video to make you think the same. WARNING: NSFW LANGUAGE.

Congrats on the record, Ahmmon. I can’t wait to see what you do next.
