Former five-star recruit Sheldon Richardson will not practice with Missouri during the first week of fall camp, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

According to the Post's Ben Frederickson, Richardson checked into camp Wednesday and has been accepted to MU, but will not practice until the NCAA finalizes his clearance of eligibility.

The 6-foot-4, 290-pound defensive lineman originally signed with the Tigers out of high school but was forced to enroll first at a junior college in California, The College of the Sequoias.

Missouri's fall camp opens Thursday, with a 3:45 p.m. practice.
