Bloom Township standout Austin Richie has decided to do a postgraduate season at prep school heavyweight Bosco Institute (IN).
Richie, a 6’5 forward, was signed to play for Division II St. Cloud State (MN).
Richie led Bloom to the Richards 4A regional title game where he scored 36 points including 6 three-pointers in a loss to Alonzo Verge (43 points) and Thornton.
Richie joins a Don Bosco program that has had great recent success with Chicago south suburban basketball talent including Rich South’s Malik Osborne (Rice) and Lincoln-Way East’s Kyle McDermed (Western Michigan) who earned their Division I opportunities this past season.
I'd like to thank Coach Reimer and the St. Cloud coaching staff for everything, but I've decided to attend Prep School at Don Bosco Prep.— Austin Richie (@AustinRichieee) June 3, 2017
