Around The Country In 2 Minutes is a segment that has become very popular in our writing content.
Our job is to survey the landscape of high school basketball. It is important to give our readers updated information on players from around the country. I am quite sure players from the West Coast are not familiar with players on east coast. Unit 1 Hoop Source’s job is to acquaint regions with one another.
Let’s take a look at one of the more intriguing prospects in the class of 2022: 6’2 165 pound guard Will Richardson of Oradell, New Jersey. Richardson is another one of those New Jersey guards that is consistently making a name for himself on a national level.
I had an opportunity to see Richardson play as a freshman. He is a very competitive guard that plays with a lot of intensity. Richardson is coming off an Impressive sophomore season; where he averaged 18.7 points and 3.5 assists per game. Richardson has a solid basketball IQ; he can play at the 1 or 2 position.
Richardson has the potential to be an outstanding on ball defender. He has good court awareness and long arms. His lateral movement allows him to take away angles from his opponents. With his active motor he has the ability to pick up 94 feet!
Richardson is a shifty guard that has the ability to get downhill quickly. He is aggressive at driving and attacking the rim off the bounce. I am extremely impressed with him in transition. Richardson has good ball skills, demonstrating the ability to switch gears and finish through contact.
Richardson plays with pace and doesn’t allow the opposition to get him out of character. He has solid Perimeter skills, and shows the ability to step outside and knock down shots. His mid range shot is also impressive for a young player.
Overall there is a lot to like about Richardson game! As he continues to develop, he will need to put on some muscle for the next level. Richardson is definitely a player that is on the radar!
247Sports has Richardson nationally ranked as the 112th player in the class of 2022; I definitely look for that to change.
At the current moment Will Richardson has been offered by Columbia, Marquette, Penn State, Villanova, and Seton Hall just to name a few.
