Josh attended and played basketball at Santa Fe High School in Edmond. During his senior year, he posted per-game averages of 16.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists. Richardson was subsequently named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large West All-State Team and The Oklahoman's Super 5 first team. As a college student and basketball player with the University of Tennessee, Richardson participated in exhibition tours of Poland, Germany and Jamaica with Athletes in Action. After reaching the NBA, he held a free two-day youth basketball camp in his hometown of Edmond, Oklahoma, in the summers of 2017 and 2018.

Richardson spent four seasons with Tennessee and started all but one game during his last three college campaigns. The 6-foot-6 guard started nine games in the middle of his freshman season for coach Cuonzo Martin. He played sparingly through the season, though, and averaged just 2.9 points. He moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and put up 7.9 points and 4.3 rebounds per game for a team that was led by Jordan McRae and Jarnell Stokes. Richardson scored 20 points for the first time in a loss to Memphis. The guard provided 10.3 points and 2.9 rebounds in his junior season. He scored a career-high 26 points in a NCAA Tournament win over Mercer. Martin left Tennessee prior to Richardson's senior season and the guard was given a prominent offensive role by new coach Donnie Tyndall. The guard led the Volunteers with 16.0 points per game, to go along with 4.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists. He powered in 30 points in a loss to Mississippi State. He earned recognition through All-SEC First Team and as a Defensive All-American. Richardson closed his career ranked in the top ten in school history in games, starts, minutes and steals. He was chosen in the second round of the 2015 NBA Draft by the Miami Heat.
