SF Kamall Richards picks Xavier

Three-star small forward Kamall Richards (Henryville, Pa./South Kent) will play in the Atlantic-10 after committing to Xavier on Tuesday. He announced his decision on www.sny.tv.

The 6-foot-6 Richards chose the Musketeers over Penn State, St. Joe's, Duquesne and Seton Hall.

"The coaching staff was really cool, the players, the guys are real cool," he said. "It's a nice campus, nice city, I liked everything about it really."

Richars is the first recruit for Xavier and head coach Chris Mack in the 2013 class.
