Late last night, JaVonte Richardson, who’s already given a verbal to Kentucky, announced that he received an offer from Pitt. Richardson (6-4, 205) is a 4-star athlete from Maple Heights, Ohio and ranked as one of the Top 100 players in the country. Richardson gave his commitment to Kentucky back in March.
