NCAA Basketball: South Carolina State at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Kadary Richmond, a 6-foot-5 combo guard in the 2020 class, has committed to the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball, per 247sports.com. He had his official visit to Syracuse last weekend and attended the team’s exhibition win against Daemen College on Saturday.

Richmond, a Brooklyn native who attends Brewster Academy in New Hampshire, is ranked 95th in the ESPN 100 and 101st in 247’s Composite Rankings. He chose the Orange over offers from Cincinnati, UConn, Florida State, Georgetown and Iowa State, among others.

Brewster Academy’s a familiar recruiting area for SU given recent success bringing in players from there. On the current roster, both Buddy Boeheim and Brendan Paul attended Brewster. C.J. Fair and Chris McCullough attended as well, as did Taurean Thompson and Ron Patterson (although the latter two transferred out of SU).

Syracuse’s current backcourt consists of junior Howard Washington, sophomores Jalen Carey and Buddy Boeheim, and freshmen Brycen Goodine and Joe Girard III.

Richmond is Syracuse’s second commitment in the 2020 class, following 6-foot-8 four-star forward Woody Newton from Mt. Zion Prep (Maryland).
