Nate Richie is a 6'3" guard from Indiana. Nathan first went to Mississinewa High School, in Gas City, Indiana. He only attended there his freshman season. Nate played on the Varsity team coached by his father Adrian. He started 19 regular season games at Mississinewa while averaging double digits in scoring. In April of that year Adrian resigned as the Mississinew's Head Boys Varsity Basketball Coach.

The family moved to Schereville, Indiana, in the Lake Central school District. Adrian became an assitant principal at Lake Central High School. Nate played basketball for Lake Central the next three seasons. His senior year was full of injuries.

Nate played 7th and 8th grade AAU for his father. The team was made up of boys all from the Mississinewa School District. Nate then played for another AAU team the next summer. Then in the summer of 99 Nate's AAU team, SYF, finished 2nd in the state.

Nates senior year was plagued by injuries, but still managed to get a D1 scholarship. Nathan decided to go to Western Michigan University. The coach he had signed to play for was let go shortly after Nate signed. Nate only played in about four games, very briefly as a freshman. He left WMU after that year. He decided to go to Drake, where he sat out last season and is currently a red shirt sophomore.
