Richardson Ready To Commit

Kyle Richardson, a very talented senior post from Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair, will commit to a Big West program tomorrow...

Kyle Richardson, 6-6 SR PF Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair, told me this evening that he'll be committing to a school tomorrow.

"I'm going to commit to Long Beach State tomorrow," said Richardson. "I was also looking at Fresno State, Utah State and Boise State."

I asked Richardson why he decided on Long Beach State.

"I liked it a lot when I went on my official visit," said Richardson. "I liked the players and I felt like I fit in the program."

Richardson is a very talented prospect with a significant upside. He's got very good hands and feet, with a nice feel in the post. And he still looks like a baby. He might not yet be done physically.

If Richardson ends up as good one day as I think he might, he could be the biggest steal of the West Coast class of 2009. This is a great get for Coach Monson and the 49ers.
