Julius Randle probably has no idea what he is stepping in to, but he is about to. He will be the go to player for the Kentucky Wildcats next year and if things don’t go right immediately then he will be one of the scapegoats for the problem.
Julius Randle and Dakari Johnson Working Hard This Summer For Big Blue Nation http://t.co/vays6Nj4DE

Randle had a phenomenal high school career and surprised some by choosing the Wildcats. He will now be thrust into a different kind of media attention and whether he succeeds or wins is largely up to his performance. He was dominant in his senior year and he will likely be looked upon for a similar impact in his freshman season of college basketball.
Random 1 year away thought: I would love to draft Julius Randle, send him to Camp Olajuwon in the off-seasons & still have Ewing.

Randle’s teammate Dakari Johnson predicted he would win a college championship shortly after his Montverde team won a high school national championship; it remains to be seen how bold of a predictions it was, but Johnson won’t even be starting on the Wildcats’ team next year.
Keep an eye out for more recruiting updates tomorrow here at Rant Sports Prep; that is all for today, but it should be an exciting summer so stay tuned.
