Malachi Richardson to announce commitment on Friday

The 2015 5-star guard tweeted that he will announce his college destination on Friday,

Malachi Richardson, one of the top 2015 targets on Villanova's recruiting board, tweeted out that he will be making his college commitment on Friday at a 2:30 pm ET press conference at Trenton Catholic.

The 6'5" shooting guard (who plays for the Philadelphia-based Team Final) is a lethal shooter from the outside, and his length allows him to be a disruptive perimeter defender. In essence, he's exactly the type of guard that Jay Wright would like to have in the fold.

Richardson announced a final 6 on November 29th- Villanova, Rutgers, Arizona, Indiana, Syracuse and UConn - a list that had been cut down from a top 12 in mid-August. As far as his campus visits, Richardson has taken unofficial visits to Villanova, Syracuse, UConn and twice to Indiana.

The 247 Crystal Ball currently favors the Syracuse Orange for Richardson's commitment, with no experts currently making the call for Villanova.
