Richardson, ranked the 47th best recruit and No. 4 guard in the nation, comes from Oak Hill Academy in Midway, Georgia.
“I see myself coming in as a leader and a lead guard that can play on and off the ball,” Richardson told Scout. “Can make the right pass and lead the team verbally and be a local leader on the court.”
The Ducks are still in the hunt for the No. 3 recruit, Bol Bol, who could make Oregon’s recruiting class the No. 1 in the nation.
Oregon continues its nonconference schedule on Friday night when they take on Alabama State at 8 p.m. and then Ball State on Sunday at 6 p.m. at Matthew Knight Arena.
