Arizona State recruit Angelo Richardson was shot early Friday morning and is in the intensive care unit of an Oakland hospital, The Arizona Republic reported.

Richardson, JC Grid-Wire All-American receiver at Santa Rosa Junior College, was one of three men shot Friday at or near a nightclub, possibly in San Francisco, the paper reported.

Richardson, shot once in the upper body, is in "a lot of pain," Santa Rosa coach Keith Simons told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, and his football future is uncertain. The other men were treated and released.

"Right now our focus is on Angelo and his family," ASU coach Dirk Koetter told the Republic on Thursday. "We hope he can make a full recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are with Angelo and his family."

At 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, Richardson led junior college receivers in 2005 with 93 receptions, 1,334 yards and 18 touchdowns.
