During his junior year he averaged 18.0 points per game, 6 assists and 4 rebounds. "I'm a combo-guard," he said as he self-assessed his skills. "I like getting my team involved. I can score, but when I get my whole team involved it's a beautiful thing. I do need to gain weight and get stronger."

"I don't have a problem leaving the state at all," he remarked. "I just want to go to a good school. I want to make my decision before the summer ends."
Richard plays on an AAU team sponsored by NBA star Tracy McGrady called the T-MAC All-Stars. The guard said that his team is scheduled to play at the prestigious ABCD camp, as well as the Adidas All-Star camp and tournaments in Las Vegas and Houston.
The guard reported an SAT score of 1120 and a GPA of 3.1, which should be to academically qualify him.
