Will Richardson is an elite student-athlete currently attending Liberty County in Midway, Georgia. After a great Spring/Summer with the Georgia Stars, Richardson is sure to see his recruiting profile explode nationally. Will has cemented himself as one of the top point guards in Georgia for the class of 2018. Most impressive about the point guard is his vision to find teammates, size to see over defenses while still being able to put the ball in the basket.
I. AAU & SELF ANALYSIS
EM: Congrats on the great Spring/Summer, can you tell us how things went for the team and for you individually?
WR: I played on the Nike circuit with the Georgia Stars and we did pretty good. I ended the summer with the 17u Celtics in Vegas on the Adidas circuit.
EM: Can you describe your game for those that are not familiar?
WR: I play point guard. I’m 6″4, have a nice handle, can shoot the ball, score in a variety of ways, and have a high IQ. I’m becoming more athletic.
EM: How often do you work on your game?
WR: Everyday. I’m focusing on getting stronger and more athletic. Making my shot more efficient off the dribble.
I'm going to have to find a spot very near the top of our GA 2018 rankings for Will Richardson of Liberty Co/GA Stars. Terrific weekend.
