Jereme Richmond to Illinois

The top player in the class of 2010 has given an oral commitment to Bruce Weber…

After his massive 34 point, 21 rebound game against Aldon-Hebron, Weber apparently didn’t waste any time in offering Jereme Richmond. Richmond, a 6-5 freshman at North Shore Country Day, gave an oral commitment to Weber on Wednesday.

“When Bruce Weber said he’s gonna change his recruitment, he sure wasn’t kidding,” Roy Schmidt of Illinois Prep Bulls-Eye said. “Skill-wise, Richmond is one of the top five players in the state regardless of class.”
