Ranked No. 22 in the Class of 2015 by Rivals, the 6-foot-5 Richardson chose Syracuse over Villanova, Rutgers, Arizona, Indiana and UConn.
His most recent visit was to Syracuse last week for the Indiana game.
“It would be amazing to go play for Coach [Jim] Boeheim at Syracuse,” Richardson told SNY.tv prior to his recent visit. “He’s a great coach. He’s an awesome guy, playing up at Syracuse is something that I’ve always wanted to do. They really have a good team with a great group of guys.”
