Top High-School Basketball Prospect Announces College Commitment With Custom Jordans

For the nation’s best high-school sports prospects, one of the most memorable moments in the evolution of a pro career is the announcement of college commitment. Five-star prospect Nick Richards of Patrick School in New Jersey just committed to the University of Kentucky with the help of a pair of customs Air Jordans, which feature the Wildcats logos, the NCAA logo and the word “CHAMP” spelled out on the ankle (all the customizer needed to add was the “MP”). ESPN ranks Richards 12th overall in the class of 2017, and given Kentucky’s penchant for producing all-pro big-man talent in the NBA, you might be hearing more from Richards pretty soon.
