Julius Randle was yesterday named the Co-MVP of the Jordan Brand Classic along with Jabari Parker. Apparently, that is not all he was up to over the weekend.

You cannot blame Randle for trying, but something tells me that Wiggins will not roll with the Wildcats. Rumors have swirled that his list is technically down to two and Kentucky is not being mentioned as one of the potential destinations. Wiggins was named the Gatorade National High School boys Basketball Player of the Year and he will be an impact player at the next lever; we just don’t happen to know where yet.
Randle may end up being the crown jewel of college basketball’s best recruiting class ever if Wiggins does not follow him to Lexington. He had a fantastic senior season where he recovered from a foot fracture in time to help lead his team to another state title. He was a late addition to the McDonald’s All American Game as a result. He shined in that one as well, but MVP honors went to Aaron Gordon for all his game changing dunks.
Randle will end up being a fantastic player in his own right and his vicious dunks will be a joy to watch at the next level too.
