6-5 Brian Richardson of Wilson, NC committed Monday to USC the day after wrapping up an official visit with the Gamecocks.
"He loved his visit," said Greenfield School coach Rob Salter. "He fell in love with the campus and the coach and players."
Richardson also had offers from Alabama, Auburn, East Carolina and UNC Wilmington. He averaged 22 points, 7 rebounds and 5 steals per game last season.
"His versatility is his strength," Salter said. "He plays three positions and he scores in several ways. He has a natural feel for the game. He's very athletic and he sees the floor well. He has that natural instinct for the game of basketball."
Never miss a local story.
Richardson is the fourth recruit for USC's 2010 class.
