5-star shooting guard Malachi Richardson, 6'6 195 lbs from Hamilton, New Jersey, has trimmed his list of college options to these six schools: Villanova, Rutgers, Arizona, Indiana, Syracuse and UConn. This announcement removes North Carolina, Kansas, Miami, Ohio State, Georgetown and Florida from contention for Richardson's commitment in the class of 2015.


Richardson had also earned offers from Cincinnati, Maryland, Pitt, Seton Hall, SMU, Minnesota and James Madison. Prior to transferring back to Trenton Catholic, Richardson was a teammate of Syracuse freshman power forward Tyler Roberson at Roselle Catholic last season.
