  • Nick Richards looking forward to becoming a vocal leader, getting better

    #4, Nick Richards, So., F

    On meeting Justify …
    “You know, I was actually kind of scared. I was hoping he wouldn’t bite my finger off. I was hesitant to feed him carrots.”

    On why he wants to be a leader now and why he wasn’t a leader before …
    ‘When I meant leader I meant like a vocal leader. During high school I never really spoke out that much. I guess it’s my personality. In high school I was more of a lead-by-example (person). My coaches and everybody just followed me. Just look what I’m doing and here we are.”

    On what he looks forward to in the position group …
    “Those group of guys around me hopefully get better in practice every day. We have PJ who basically played with a broken finger last year. You have guys like Rob (Harris) who will teach you how to be hungry. EJ (Montgomery), he works hard every day and does one-on-one workouts with the coaches to get better and get ready for the season.”

    On waiting for his teammates to decide about the draft …
    “We all knew what was going to happen. It was pretty obvious who was going to be here and who wasn’t going to be here. The draft is in a couple of days and I hope everybody that’s in the draft becomes successful in the NBA. Hopefully I’ll be able to join them.”

    On why Jarred Vanderbilt and Wenyen Gabriel went to the draft …
    “That’s their decision, what reason they chose to go to the draft. The saw it as a good opportunity for them to go and enter their name in the NBA. I wish them nothing but the best and good luck to them.”

      If he can learn to move his feet and where to be on defense he will be an asset.

      Learning how to catch the ball or how to dunk would be nice too.

      We will have guys to score. He needs to be able to defend his man and understand Cal’s defense.
