Five-star center Nick Richards has set an announcement date. The No. 17 prospect in the country has announced that he will be making his commitment on November 10 at his high school.
For the 6-foot-10 Richards it has been a long process that started back during his freshman season. The three schools remaining in the mix for Richards are Kentucky, Syracuse, and Arizona.
All three schools have made Richards a priority for a long time, and he has already made official visits to both Kentucky and Syracuse. Also Richards is someone who has made a few unofficial visits to Syracuse, which is located close to his home in New York City.
Richards averaged 12 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks per game this summer while playing with Expressions Elite in the Nike EYBL. Overall Richards is one of the best rebounders, shot blockers, and position defenders in the class of 2017. He should be an instant impact player on the defensive end from the moment he steps on campus at whichever school he chooses.
