Richardson's List Coming Along

Maywood (IL) Proviso East has produced some outstanding guards the past few seasons. Shannon Brown and Dee Brown get all the headlines – and rightfully so – but Charlie Richardson is a prospect in his own right.

Three Offers For East Star

Proviso East point guard Charlie Richardson doesn't get much publicity, but that's only because he's surrounded himself with superior fire power on the high school level. Nonetheless, Richardson has bloomed into a fine player too.

"Everything is going fine right now," Richardson said regarding his recruitment. "I'm waiting on a couple of contacts so I can narrow it down, take my visits and hopefully make my decision before October."

Currently, Richardson is quick to list DePaul, Ball State, Nebraska, Florida State, Mississippi State, Arkansas and Louisville. At this juncture, Ball State, Nebraska and DePaul have stepped up and made offers.

"Right now, I'm trying to get away from home. The coaches and the players are going to be important. I want to visit to get to know people more."

Richardson said that he would like to visit Nebraska in September. He's thinking of taking an unofficial visit to Ball State this coming weekend. Richardson said that Ball State and DePaul recruited him the hardest in July.
