Richard Chaney, 6-4 SG Los Angeles Verbum Dei, is an athletic wing player who has seen his recruitment pick up in the last month.
We spoke with Richard at the Best of Summer and he told us the schools he's considering at this point include Utah, Arizona, USC, Oregon, Nevada and Portland.
We asked if he had a leader and Richard replied, "Utah. I like Tim Drisdom, who just committed there, and Coach Majerus is a good coach. I want to play for a good coach."
Richard told us that he has taken unofficial visits to UCLA and USC. He said that his first official visit will be in September to Utah.
We asked if any other schools stood out for him and he said, "Arizona, maybe. But I'm not sure about that."
We asked if he might make a commitment in the near future and Richard said, "I might commit to Utah in the next month or so."
Note: We spoke with Richard prior to Bryant Markson, another wing player, committing to Utah. We have no idea if this affects either Richard's or Utah's level of interest.
