During a phone call with D.J. Richardson, Sr. this morning he informed me that his son and five-star recruit D.J. Richardson, Jr. will be attending prep school in the fall. "He leaves this Friday for school. He's fine with grades, we just want him to get the best grades possible before he enrolls at Illinois," said Richardson.
Often times when players decided to attend prep school it usually opens up their recruitment; that's not the case with Richardson. "He's going to be at the University of Illinois, that's for sure," Richardson stated.
D.J. had a great summer, and now has put himself in position to be one of the nation's elite players when the spring accolades roll around. We'll keep you informed on Richardson's senior year at Findlay Prep School in Las Vegas.
