Four-star point guard, Will Richardson from Hinesville (Ga.) Liberty County, was offered by Oklahoma State on June 12th according to 247 Sports. The 6-4, 180-pound PG, is the 78h ranked player in the 2018 class, the 17th PG overall and the number one PG in the state of Georgia, according to Scout took to Twitter to make the announcement.
One position that the Cowboys have had a rich tradition at is PG, and Richardson would be a welcomed addition to that tradition. Coming off a strong year, this is what he had to say to Scout’s Josh Gershon.
“It was a pretty good year, we made it all the way to the Final Four.” Richardson said. “My game progressed a lot; I went from an average player to one of top guys in the state as a junior. My confidence grew a lot.”
If there’s one position you need confidence at, it’s PG. Especially in this league.
Richardson also said to Gershon that his best quality is scoring.
“I’m a big point guard at 6-4.” He said. “I can score from all three levels but I also pass and rebound well.” (Jawun Evans spoiled Poke fans with his ability to rebound so efficiently.) “I’m mostly a scoring point guard. I want to get better at seeing the floor and better on defense.”
Going into his junior season, there’s plenty of time to work on defense and court-vision. Although, at this point, you would like for him to be a little bit more well-rounded, I think scoring would be first on my list of qualities I want my point guard to have.
Richardson’s recruiting has really taken off as he’s received offers from Wichita State, VCU, Texas A&M, USC, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State, Butler, Arizona State, Alabama and Georgia among others.
