Jase Richardson, a four-star point guard in the class of 2024, has narrowed his list of schools down to eight: Alabama, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Michigan State, San Diego State, Stanford, USC, and Virginia.

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound junior out of Las Vegas Bishop Gorman has taken an official visit to Michigan State and unofficial visits to Arkansas, Stanford, and Washington (no longer being considered).

Along with his eight finalists, Richardson also received offers from UNLV, Arizona State, Washington, Florida, Cal, Kansas, and others.

Jase is the son of former Michigan State star and longtime NBA player Jason Richardson.

According to the On3 Industry Rankings, Jase Richardson ranks as the No. 49 overall prospect in the 2024 class. He’s also the nation’s No. 9 point guard and the No. 2 player in the state of Nevada.

Richardson talks programs involved

In previous interviews with On3, Richardson discussed several of the schools involved in his recruitment.

Michigan State: “I was able to see how tight the family is there. Everybody involved with the program, all the alumni and the current guys on the team, they are just like one big family there. They want their point guards to facilitate and get to the basket when they can. I think I fit that, most definitely.”

“It’s pretty cool that 25 years after my Dad was recruited by Coach (Tom) Izzo, I’m being recruited by him as well. While it would be cool to go to the same school, my Dad went to, I have to figure out what school best fits me and the type of player I am.”

USC: “They love to play five out and let their guards do their work. They give their point guards a lot of freedom but play together as a team.”

Arkansas: “My favorite part of that visit was the fans, to be real. They are die-hard and are definitely down for their Hogs. It was amazing to see the atmosphere out there.”

Richardson breaks down his game

“I’m an all-around playmaker,” Richardson told On3. “I can score at all three levels. Taking care of the ball is one of the most important things to me, but I’m an all-around playmaker. Having surgery eight months ago, I worked a lot on my ball handling and getting shots up every day. I try to take from Kyrie (Irving) with his handle and footwork and Russ (Westbrook) with his intensity and tenacity.”

On3 NIL Valuation

Jase Richardson currently holds a $58,000 On3 NIL Valuation.

The On3 NIL Valuation is the industry’s leading index that sets the standard market NIL value for high school and college athletes. A proprietary algorithm, the On3 NIL Valuation calculates an athlete’s NIL value using dynamic data points targeting three primary categories: performance, influence and exposure.

About On3 NIL Valuation, Brand Value, Roster Value

While the algorithm includes deal data, it does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals athletes have completed to date, nor does it set an athlete’s NIL valuation for their entire career.

The On3 NIL Valuation accounts for an athlete’s roster value and brand value. Roster value is the value an athlete has by being a member of his or her team at his or her school, which factors into the role of NIL collectives. Brand value factors in an athlete’s personal brand and the value it could bring to regional and national brands outside of the scope of NIL collectives.
