2024 Billy Richmond has seen his stock rise over the last year or so, and he has proven to be a big-time talent that schools are looking to snag. Richmond recently announced in August that he is down to eight schools with Texas, Memphis, Alabama, Kentucky, Miami, Kansas, Louisville, and LSU all making the list.

He also recently announced that he would be making an official visit to LSU this weekend.

Here is what Phenom Hoops has said about Richmond in the past:'

“Another viewing of Richmond, another time I walk away impressed. There is just something about his game that you have to like; at 6'7, Richmond can be an effective weapon in a variety of ways. Can play, operate, and defend multiple positions, he is relentless in getting to the rim and scoring, but also can find other ways to score as well. Athletic, versatile, and simply an x-factor on the floor, Richmond will be a great get for a program in the coming years.”

“Richmond came in ranked as a Top-100 type talent but after getting a first-hand view of him in action, I walked away incredibly impressed and having a feeling that he will be getting a bump from many national outlets. Shortly after that, Richmond walked away with an offer from Kentucky' the 6'5 prospect was flying high, finishing effortlessly at the rim, and displaying his versatility and impact on both sides of the ball. Richmond was excellent in transition, has great size, and showcased his ability to be an effective scorer and his elite athleticism. There is a lot to like about his game and it was on display at the John Wall.”
