Basketball: Richmond granted 3-day pass to try out in Philly
Former high school basketball and University of Illinois standout Jereme Richmond wiped tears of relief from his eyes as he exited a courtroom Friday morning after a judge granted him a 3-day pass for a basketball tryout in Philadelphia.
Richmond, 20, of Waukegan, was placed on a 24-hour, home-bound curfew in October after testing positive for marijuana while on probation after pleading guilty in January to unlawful use of a weapon. In March, his season with the Sauk Valley Predators came to an end before the playoffs because of a violation of his probation.
“He would be going for a tryout with certain athletic teams,” Richmond’s attorney, Lawrence Wade, told Judge John Phillips, adding that all of the tryouts would be in the Philadelphia area at one specific facility between Dec. 8 and 10.
