If Richmond defects, that family will be 100x more of a liar than the Gordon family. They've made it abundantly clear that they made a commitment to the university and not any coach. Bill Richmond has flat-out said as much. It's important to remember that the way Gordon handled his commitment remains the exception. Most people still stick by their word.
I remember an article from when Richmond committed where one of his youth coaches said he was as obsessed with Illinois from a young age as Scheyer was with Duke.
Back to the point, Richmond and Deshaun Thomas are as good as it gets in 2010, probably.
