Edmond Santa Fe’s Josh Richardson is ranked No. 103 on the current Rivals 150 for the basketball recruiting class of 2011.

Richardson, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who helped the Wolves to the Class 6A state semifinals last March, is the only Oklahoma player currently on the list. He also ranks as the No. 29 shooting guard in the country.

Playing for Athletes First, Richardson has drawn national attention this summer after a strong junior campaign that earned him a spot on The Oklahoman’s Super 5. Aside from several local and regional colleges that are keeping an eye on Richardson, he also has strong recruiting interest from the west, with programs like Arizona State and UCLA.

Based on a couple of reports from BruinBlitz.com, UCLA really likes Richardson, and vice versa, because of  both the athletics and academics. Richardson is a very intelligent student considering a medical career. And that’s not just talk. The kid already has a basketball scholarship offer from Harvard. Right now, his other offer is Arizona State, but there are more to come.

The Athletes First team will not be able to participate in the Dallas Showtime Tournament this weekend, but on July 12-15, they’re scheduled to be in Augusta, Ga., for the infamous Peach Jam, an invitation-only Nike tournament.

The team includes a lot of talented players, like Richardson, Obi Emegano of Edmond Memorial, Ryan Spangler of Bridge Creek, Nino Jackson of Ardmore, Stephen Clark of Douglass, Matt Christiansen and Joe Edmonds of Bishop McGuinness, and several others.
