Morristown West product to play basketball at MC

from staff reports


   Channing Richardson, a 6-7 standout center from Morristown West High School, has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Milligan College.
   Richardson averaged 17 points per game and 11 rebounds per game this past season for the Trojans.
   He was selected to the All-Lakeway Region Team, All-IMAC Team, All-District first team, and All-Northeast Tennessee second team. As a junior he was an All-Region selection.
   Milligan head coach Tony Wallingford is excited to have Richardson join his program.
   "Channing has outstanding potential," Wallingford said. "He's got a lot of natural athletic ability that we feel combined with some added strength make him an excellent prospect for our program.
   "Our lack of depth in the post position presents a solid opportunity for Channing to gain valuable experience as a freshman. He is a hard worker, a quality person and a good fit for Milligan College."
   Richardson plans a major in business at Milligan. He is the son of Mike and Kathy Richardson of Morristown.
