Richie Saunders Player Preview

Richie Saunders was a key piece of BYU’s 2020 recruiting class, choosing the Cougars over offers from Creighton, Utah, Oregon State, Utah State, and others. He returned from his mission to Seattle in May and has responded quickly since returning home.

Richie was known primarily for his shooting in high school, and while I think that will always be a big part of his game, I think his defense and effort are what will be most impactful this season.
