Tonight, Jereme Richmond of Waukegan (Ill) will become fathomed by the whole country, as he takes on Harrison Barnes from Ames (IA), whom is already highly touted. Richmond is intriguing, he has chose to stay home and remain loyal to Illinois. Past heralded players from Illinois, whom are currently in college and NBA, are Sherron Collins(Kansas U), Julian Wright(New Orleans Hornets), Derrick Rose(Chicago Bulls), Jon Scheyer(Duke), and Evan Turner(Ohio State U). That enriched crop chose to go elsewhere, rather than do what Richmond has obligated himself to do, make Illinois basketball regal, once again. No one outside of Illinois is saying Richmond is the savior for his committed University, but many of Fighting Illini's fans believe their recent flock of underclassmen can bolt them to Houston in 2011, and so far the College is off to a promising start without their pivotal recruit. Richmond is regarded for being a outgoing and cordial teenager, as he displays in a interview only at age 14: "Do you have a girlfriend?" the reported asked. "Nah... Nah... Nah... there's been no time for commitment that comes with a girlfriend, so... nah. I don't have one." said Richmond, with a mature demeanor. He enjoys music by Lil Wayne, at same the time, drinking Orange Gatorade - go figure - and watching YouTube clips that holds a ledger of himself. On March 13, 2009, former Senior of Warren (Ill), Brandon Paul - the awaiting teammate at Illinois - stood on the Free-Throw line, amidst an ending high-school game between his team and Richmond's Waukegan team. "Paul at the strike... first free-throw goes... second goes... third goes!" said the announcer, illustrating his emotions with vividness. "Waukegan in-bounds the ball... Richmond smoothly advances up court... he lets it fly..." Unexpectedly, to one's surprise, Jereme Richmond nails the shot, right after the announcers' sequel. "Jereme does it again!" the announcer attested. You may be thinking - or already thought - that Richmond isn't on Barnes level of play, and I'm telling you to disclaim that train of thought. This up-and-coming 'wing' is going to be considered a one-and-down talent halfway through his college season, of next year. I wouldn't be surprised if Richmond ended the game tonight in that fashion, to which the media commentator I sat next to described, with 'crazy' emotions...

ive never seen him play but heard people talking about him when i was in vegas( not sure if he played) and they said he is pretty good(the people talking about him were from chicago
He's the consolation prize for Illinois.
and if u wanna mention players from illinois u might wanna mention dwyane wade (miami heat) lol.
yeah would have mentioned wade. watching the game right know and barnes looks good, not forcing anything like most high school phenoms do when on natoinal tv
Wade was suppose to attend Depaul - it's messed up how their previous coach doubted him. Harrison Barnes on the other hand, reminds me of Loul Deng with a handle.
