It seems like Kadary Richmond (Brooklyn, N.Y./Brewster Academy) made the right choice when it came to delaying the end of his high school career and reclassifying back to 2020.
Originally a member of the 2019 class, rumors of a reclassification emerged in late spring, before it was officially confirmed. Around that time, more suitors entered the recruiting scene for the three-star playmaking wing, who has received a dozen offers since Apr. 29.
Half of the Big East offered Richmond, but he’ll only be keeping Seton Hall, St. John’s, UConn, and Oregon around.

Each of his four finalists were relatively recent offers, coming in April or later.
Aside from his final quartet, he also received offers from fellow Big East schools Xavier, Georgetown, and Creighton, as well as Iowa State, Texas, Cincinnati, Dayton, Saint Louis, Penn State, Wichita State, VCU, Rhode Island, Norfolk State, North Florida, Niagara, Marist, Manhattan, LIU Brooklyn, Kansas State, FIU, Evansville, New Mexico, and Siena.
Richmond 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. He has since transferred to basketball powerhouse Brewster Academy (N.H.), where he will be spending his final year of high school hoops.
