Fordham University Men’s Basketball head coach Kyle Neptune announced the signing of Will Richardson (Teaneck, N.J./Bergen Catholic) to a National Letter of Intent for the 2022-2023 season.
“We could not be more excited for Will to join The Ramily here at Rose Hill,” said Neptune. “He comes to us from a great family with strong values that are aligned with our own and brings experience playing at the highest levels of high school basketball under great coaches at Bergen Catholic during the season and in spring and summer with PSA.
Richardson, at dynamic, 6-2, 160-pound, point guard at Bergen Catholic averaged 18.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 2.1 steals per game in a COVID-shortened 2020-2021 season. He earned first-team All-North Jersey honors following the season.
Richardson helped the Crusaders to a 7-2 record as a junior last year, with wins over perennial powers Gill St. Bernard’s, The Patrick School, and Montclair Immaculate.
As a sophomore at Bergen Catholic in 2019-2020, Richardson averaged 18 points per game and added over five assists in 29 games. In addition, NJ.com named him the state’s player of the year after his performance in the state tournament where he averaged over 22 points per game over a three-game span and led the Crusaders to a non-public state championship.
“Will embodies what it means to be a Fordham Basketball player,” added Neptune. “Off the floor, he’s a mature young man and diligent student. On the floor, he’s a tough, gritty, intelligent basketball player that loves the game and – most importantly to our staff – loves to compete and win.”
Richardson plays with the PSA Cardinals on the AAU circuit.
