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.
