Richard headed for New Town
After winning the Class 1A state title last winter, New Town already has a number of good players under coach Mike Daniel.
Now the team has one more.
The Baltimore Sun reported that Khalil Richard, a strong guard who formerly played private school ball at St. Frances, is joining New Town for this season.
Richard already has committed to Siena for next year, heading north to play for Jimmy Patsos,
Richard will be a senior this season, and The Sun said he transferred to Shiloh High in Georgia. But he then came back to Baltimore and shifted to New Town, in Owings Mills.
Daniel told The Sun that Richard would begin classes at New Town the day before Thanksgiving and start practicing after that.
That makes New Town even tougher if everything works out with Richard. He makes the defending state champs even deeper, something that will especially help them come playoff time.
