Oregon Ducks Men's basketball gets a commitment from Houston shooting guard, Fred Richardson III

New, 8 comments

The Men's basketball team received a commitment tonight from Houston shooting guard, Fred Richardson III. Richardson wasn't on anyone's radar but reportedly turned heads last weekend and earned a scholarship offer from Dana Altman and the Ducks. He committed this evening, according to hoopniks.com.

Courtcred.com had this to say about Richardson over the weekend: "Richardson was one of the kids that a lot of the coaches flocked in to see. In a setting like this where everybody is out for self, it was tough to get a full evaluation on the wing. Richardson didn't hold the ball when he caught it, he swung it around, moved without the ball. He relies heavy on his jump shot and he knows how to create space for himself. Made a couple of shots easier for himself using jabs and a couple of dribbles to get a foot in the paint."
