Scott Powers of Ill. talked with Richmond today….

Jereme Richmond, the jewel of Illinois’ 2010 recruiting class, has transferred from North Shore to Waukegan.

“It’s because of the commute and just because I didn’t fit in from a social standpoint,” Richmond said.

The 6-6 sophomore committed to Illinois after his first high school game.

“There are definitely times where I think what could have been and what other schools could have been recruiting me,” Richmond said. “Being humans, you never know what the future can hold. As of now, I’m confident with it and positive with my decision.”
