SANDY — After visiting with Hawaii coach Norm Chow, Alta wideout Mack Richards pledged to the Warriors Saturday night.

His father, Bill, confirmed his commitment with the Deseret News.

Richards was honored as first-team all-state after hauling in 65 receptions for 1,089 yards and 13 touchdowns during his senior year. In 34 career games, he finished with 128 catches for 2,009 yards and 25 touchdowns.

This is the second straight season an Alta all-state receiver has left the mainland after Ammon Barker’s commitment in 2012. He also joins former teammate Max Broman and Layton receiver Marcus Kemp at Hawaii.
