Richardson is a 6-5, 195-pound shooting guard from Roselle Catholic (N.J.) who’s already gained offers from Rutgers, Seton Hall,
"[Terps assistant] coach [Scott] Spinelli gave me a call. He said my game fits their style of play and they're really interested in me," Richardson said.
Richardson averaged 12 points as a freshman and opened eyes last summer playing for the Team Final AAU program.
"I think people like my all-around game, my length and my jump shot," he said.
Richardson said he grew up following Rutgers and Syracuse, but has no favorites.
"Not yet. It's still early. [Location's] not a factor," he said.
Thus far, Richardson's visited nearby schools Rutgers, Seton Hall and Villanova. He hopes to add Maryland to that list this winter.
"Maybe in a few weeks. I haven't talked to them about it yet, but I will definitely do that soon," he said. "I don't know a lot about it, but the strength of schedule is a plus. I like the ACC."
