According to multiple sources, it has been said that Nick Richards is returning to Kentucky for his sophomore season.
As a freshman this past season, Richards appeared in every game and recorded 5.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per contest. However, his role diminished as the season wore on, and he had just 11 points over his final 10 games.
There’s no question Richards has a lot of work to do, but we did see some flashes of the 7’0″ center becoming a quality big man. He could make as big of a jump next season as any returning Wildcat and it may lead to him being a first-round pick in what is shaping up to be a very thin 2019 draft class.
