Malachi Richardson will visit Indiana unofficially Aug. 24, he told SNY.tv Sunday.
“I love the coaching staff, that’s my main thing,” said Richardson, who just announced he was transferring back to Trenton (N.J.) Catholic from Roselle (N.J.) Catholic. “Great coaching staff and great feel for the coaches.”
The 6-foot-5 Richardson — the No. 19 prospect in the Class of 2015 according to Rivals — grew up as a Syracuse and Indiana fan.
He’s also planning several September visits.
“I’ll be visiting Georgetown, UConn, Ohio State and Syracuse in September,” he said, adding that no dates had been set.
Richardson had planned to visit Miami and Florida while he was in Orlando for AAU Nationals.
“My mom didn’t fly down to Orlando with me so things had to get cancelled,” he said, adding that he will still visit those schools “later down the line.”
