Malachi Richardson commits to Syracuse

2015 Trenton Catholic (NJ) wing Malachi Richardson committed to Syracuse on Friday afternoon.

Richardson committed to SU after visiting the school on Dec. 3. The Orange defeated Indiana 69-52 as part of the ACC/Big 10 Challenge. He is a five-star recruit, and the No. 3 rated small forward in Scout.com’s 2015 class.

Richardson had many connections to Syracuse, including playing with current Syracuse forward Tyler Roberson at Roselle Catholic (NJ) and playing for Team Final, the same AAU program that Trevor Cooney played at.

“It would be amazing to go play for coach Boeheim at Syracuse,” Richardson told SNY.tv’s Adam Zagoria prior to his commitment. “He’s a great coach. He’s an awesome guy, playing up at Syracuse is something that I’ve always wanted to do. They really have a good team with a great group of guys.”

Richardson had recently narrowed his list of schools to Syracuse, Villanova, Rutgers, Arizona, Indiana and UConn.
