According to Coffeyville Asst. Coach Ryan Hellenthal, the quick 5-7, 155 pound Richardson and athletic 6-7 power forward Anthony Slack will visit Illinois State from Apr. 6-8.
A dynamic floor general who excels in transition, Richardson averaged 16.1 points, 5.1 assists and 2.4 steals per game for the Red Ravens in 2005-2006. He shot 34 percent beyond the arc and 78 percent from the charity stripe.
After Coffeyville lost its opener a few weeks back at the NJCAA Tournament, Richardson rallied the Red Ravens to a seventh place finish. For his efforts, he was given the Bud Obee Award for most outstanding small player (6-1 and under) of the tournament.
"He's the best leader I've been around in my four years of coaching at the junior college level," Hellenthal said. "He has the ability to push guys to another level."
Should Richardson decide to schedule more trips after his Illinois State visit, we will keep you posted.
