Theo Riddick Taking His Time

With basketball season ending for Theo Riddick, the Immaculata HS RB can now focus on his recruiting and plan some trips. Expected to be one of the best backs in the northeast, Riddick has set some dates and has the Knights in mind. Come see where he's going.

Star running back Theo Riddick out of Somerville, N.J. has said that he didn't want to worry about recruiting too much while his basketball season is in progress.

Immaculata High School won the state championship and lost in the TLC, which is a tournament of champions, in the second round to St. Ann's.

When he's not dodging would be tacklers, Riddick's running the point for his school's basketball team. He considers himself more of a distributing point guard that likes to get others involved and said he played alright in the tournament.

"I did well," he said. "I averaged 10 points and seven assists in the tourney."

It's his football ability however, that has spiked the interest of multiple colleges and he will now solely concentrate on the gridiron.

"This will be my last season playing basketball," Riddick said. "It's football all the way from here."

Now with the season over, the 5-foot-10 185 pound running back can get back on his recruiting and focus on what campuses he would like to see.

The four star back will visit Penn State and Notre Dame, the two schools that have most recently offered, on April 5 and April 11.

With the home state school of interest, Rutgers, Riddick wants to go to its spring game with a fellow teammate.

"I'm definitely trying to go with Mark Brazinski," he said.

According to Riddick, recruiting him has been a major priority of the Scarlet Knights and he wouldn't want to have it any other way.

"Sending a lot [of mail] every week," he said. "They are recruiting me hard I should say, and I'm loving it."

Riddick still remains open and has no favorite teams yet.

"I wish I could have [a top five]," he said. "But, right now I'm still looking."
