Villanova basketball recruiting: Malachi Richardson names top 12 schools

It's still early, but the elite 2015 SG has trimmed his list for the first time.

At the beginning of August Villanova offered Malachi Richardson, one of the top prospects in the class of 2015. Jay Wright had been on Richardson for quite some time, but following a strong July live period in which he played a year up with Team Final (alongside Mikal Bridges), Wright pulled the trigger with an offer.

Now just a couple of weeks later, Richardson has cut his list down for the first time. Here are the schools that made the cut, per Richardson's Twitter feed.

First of all, great job getting 12 schools in there and some mysterious periods at the end in 140 characters are less. That's a list chock full of traditional powers, which should be expected for a player of Richardson's caliber. If Villanova is going to have a serious shot, they are going to need to have a good season and return to the upper-echelon of college basketball.

For now though, it's good to still be in the race for Malachi Richardson's signature.
