The 2019/20 Brooklyn native just got an offer from Georgetown.

If New York high school hoops saw the last of Kadary Richmond, it was certainly a great last impression. The 6-foot-5 point guard wrapped up his career at South Shore (N.Y.) with another PSAL Class AA championship, making that back-to-back titles over the last two seasons, and a selection to the NYSSWA All-State First Team.

However, it appears that Richmond isn’t done yet, and he’s looking to leave an even bigger impression for Division I coaches following the AAU trail.

The Georgetown Hoyas became the latest school to offer Richmond, doing so on Thursday.

Richmond was originally a Class of 2019 prospect, but it seems like he’ll be pushing things back and reclassify to 2020, in hopes to garner more college offers. It wouldn’t be a bad idea, considering how he’s young for his grade. He is currently 17 years old and doesn’t turn 18 until August.

Georgetown hit the jackpot with their current freshmen/rising sophomore guards Mac McClung and James Akinjo—two Big East All-Freshman Team selections. The Hoyas are hoping that Richmond can continue that trend. So far, Richmond looks like a worthy candidate. At 6-foot-5, he has great size and length for a point guard. He has solid handles, can see the floor well, and is comfortable at dictating the tone on the floor. He can speed it up when needed or thrive in the half court. He’s a great facilitator and a talented scorer as well. He can take and make mid-range jumpers, finish at the basket with an electric one-hand jam, or pull up from way beyond the arc. He’s an active player defensively and swarms passing lanes or causes deflections with his active hands.

Richmond also has Big East offers from Seton Hall and Creighton. Outside of the conference, he’s fielded offers from UConn, Penn State, Oregon, Wichita State, VCU, Rhode Island, Saint Louis, New Mexico, Kansas State, Manhattan, Marist, and many others.
