2007 Introduction: Marques Richards

Marques Richards is something of a late-bloomer and he didn't get seen by many people prior to last summer. His father tells us that two schools are still in the mix and one school, in particular, is high on his son's list...

Marques Richards, 6-2 SR SG Culver City (Calif.) High, had a terrific senior season, averaging 25 points a game. We spoke with Richards' father recently and he gave us an update on his son's recruitment.

"San Diego and Boston College are the main two schools he's talking to right now," said Mr. Richards. "Boston College is the school he'd like to go to – that's his first choice."

Richards has yet to take any official visits to either school, but he did attend the summer camp at San Diego in June.

"He liked it down there when he went to the camp," said Mr. Richards.

Mr. Richards told us that his son hopes to take some official visits in the near future.

"Now that his season is done, we'll set something up," said Mr. Richards. "Hopefully, he'll be able to make his decision soon."
