HOUSTON - Wesleyan Christian Academy point guard JaQuel Richmond became the newest member of the University of Houston Men's Basketball program with his signing to a National Letter of Intent, head coach James Dickey announced Wednesday.

Standing at 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds, Richmond is a physically gifted guard with quick speed and solid ball-handling skills. Richmond also was recruited by Tennessee, Texas A&M, Florida State and Creighton.

"We are excited to welcome JaQuel to the University of Houston," said Dickey, who is in his fourth year with the Cougars. "He is an exciting, young player with speed and quickness. He is a very good leader and can score. We look forward to JaQuel joining our program."

Richmond was ranked as a 3-star recruit by ESPN, Rivals.com and Scout.com and will compete as a freshman with the Cougars during the 2014-15 season.

As a junior, the Greensboro, N.C, native led the Trojans to the NCISA Class3A state championship, scoring a team-high 18 points in the title game against Greensboro Day Academy.

"JaQuel is a fabulous kid and a fierce competitor," said Wesleyan Christian Academy head coach Keith Gatlin, who worked with Richmond for four years. "He can score the ball, he is a leader and he is extremely fast. He had 23 in our season opener (on Tuesday), and he would have had 33 if I hadn't pulled him early."
