Brian Richardson, a rising senior at Greenfield School, is in Charlottesville, Va., this week to participate in the prestigious NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp.
The camp, observing its 12th summer at the University of Virginia, counts many NBA stars among its alumni, including Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles and Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic.
All the top players in the class of 2010, including Kinston's Reggie Bullock; Harrison Barnes of Ames, Iowa; Will Barton of Baltimore and Brandon Knight of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. In short, this puts Richardson among the cream of the nation's crop in the 2010 recruiting class.
Greenfield head coach Rob Salter told me Richardson is being heavily pursued by Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina, Alabama and Xavier, among others.
With fellow rising senior Jeremy Jeffers garnering attention from the likes of South Carolina, Auburn, Virginia Commonwealth as well as many Ivy League schools (due to his outstanding grades), the Knights should have plenty of attention this winter. Greenfield will participate in the GlaxoSmithKline Holiday Invitational at Raleigh Broughton High School.
