Weber State Scores Commitment from Ryan Richardson

Last week, Weber State got a verbal from big man Zach Braxton, who looks like he could step in and immediately be a solid contributor for them.

This week, they got another big-time recruit in wing man Ryan Richardson.

Richardson is a 6'6'' wing with deep deep range, as he shot 49% from three-point range last season. He averaged 16.9 PPG, shooting 55% overall. Reports also say he has a long wingspan and can finish above the rim. He is also a willing defender.

Watching his highlight video, he has a quick release, solid athleticism, and a nice floater (which is important as he will need to be more than just a shooter to excel at this level. His release could be raised a little bit to make it even quicker, but nobody in the Big Sky does player development like Weber State does, so I am sure any issues will be cleaned up. Richardson looks like he will be a big-time player in the Big Sky.
