CHRIS RICHARD IS NOT COMITTED TO UF

                       

Chris Richard is a super center / power forward prospect out of Lakeland Kathleen Senior High School.  Richard said that right now he has not given anyone a commitment and his final four is, "Florida, Alabama, Auburn, and Miami."  When Richard was asked about the accuracy of him being close to giving Florida a verbal he said, "That was a rumor.  I'm going to wait until I come from the USA Basketball Camp (end of July) [before he commits].

 

This past Thursday Richard started on a mini-tour of colleges and camps.  On Thursday he went to Auburn for the first time ever.  He said it was, "better than I thought it would be."  Then on Friday he went back to Alabama to take a look at it one more time.  "There was really nothing new," he said about his Bama visit.  Then on Saturday he left for New York where he played in the Rumble in the Bronx Tournament.

 

Currently Richard has offers from his top four schools and from a host of others as well.  Some of the other schools that offered him a scholarship were Maryland, Indiana, FSU, and NC State.
