Gathers de-commits from St. John's, pushes back signing

Riverside Academy star Ricardo Gathers, who committed to St. John’s in the summer, has re-opened his recruitment through the spring, Riverside coach Timmy Byrd said Wednesday.

Wednesday was the first day of the weeklong early signing period, when committed players generally sign with their schools. The regular signing period for basketball prospects begins in April.

“It’s been a process for a little while,” Byrd said. “He just wants to make sure wherever he goes, it’s the right decision. He kind of felt like he rushed into his decision a little bit prematurely. He wants to take this time and just really focus and think about where he wants to go.”

Byrd said Gathers may still sign with St. John’s in the spring, but will consider other schools as well.

“He’s not doing this to get caught in a recruiting situation. What he wants to do is wait and see where things shake out, and he wants to make sure everybody’s on the same page about where he’s going to go,” Byrd said. “A kid shouldn’t sign if he’s not 100 percent sure about where he wants to go. He’s just not 100 percent sure at this point.”

Gathers earned Louisiana’s Mr. Basketball award as a junior, averaging 20.7 points, 16.2 rebounds and 3.9 blocked shots. Riverside finished 33-6 season and won its second straight Class 2A state title. 

Listed by ESPN as the nation’s No. 30 prospect, Gathers has been a top target of LSU for some time.

Wednesday’s developments bring the Tigers back into play.

“Any time you have a kid in-state, LSU’s going to be a large attraction for them because it’s the state school,” said Byrd, a former LSU quarterback.  “I know the coaching staff up there has done a really good job recruiting Ricardo.”

Gathers committed to St. John’s on July 30, choosing the Red Storm over LSU, Texas, Arizona and Syracuse.
