THE LIST: Class of 2015 Rivals150
New conference, same results. Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orange continue to roll along adding high level talent on the recruiting trail as they enter the ACC.
Friday afternoon, the Orange got their weekend started right when they landed the No. 22 player in the class of 2015, Malachi Richardson.
A 6-foot-5 shooting guard at Trenton (N.J.) Catholic, Richardson announced his decision during a press conference at his school.
In Richardson, the Orange are getting a guy who seems to be tailor made for everything that they do on the offensive and defensive ends of the floor.
Boeheim has always liked wings that have good length, can play physically in transition and knock down some jumpers from deep. That's exactly what Richardson excels at. He's a scorer via the jumper who can finish through contact in transition and he doesn't dribble around like a Globetrotter.
On the defensive end, Richardson often uses his long arms to get deflections in passing lanes and he's a good positional defender. Again, this makes him ideal for the 2-3 zone he will play in during his college years. Play him at the top or one either wing on the bottom half of the zone and he covers ground.
The high end four-star prospect is the second player from the class of 2015 to select Syracuse. Richardson joins four-star power forward Tyler Lydon who currently ranks No. 77 nationally.
