Syracuse Basketball: Malachi Richardson Announcement Open Thread

Five-star recruit will choose from six schools today and SU is considered a favorite.

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Class of 2015 recruit Malachi Richardson, five-star rated by to both Scout and ESPN, will make his college decision Friday at 2:30 p.m. Eastern from his high school. The Syracuse Orange are considered by many to be among the favorites for his services.

The 6-foot-5 Trenton Catholic shooting guard narrowed his list down to Syracuse, Indiana, Villanova, Rutgers, Arizona and UConn. He took an unofficial visit to SU for the Indiana game, so I think we all know where they stand now.

Richardson previously played at Roselle Catholic with Tyler Roberson before transferring.

If he commits, he'll join PF Tyler Lydon in SU's 2015 Class.

If nothing else, I just want him to commit for the Children of the Corn references...
