Julius Randle Is The Crown Jewel of Kentucky Wildcats' Recruiting Class

With the Andrew Wiggins’ decision, we almost had a different alpha male or crown jewel of the Kentucky Wildcats recruiting class. Julius Randle is probably secretly happy that things played out this way though and he can get to work as being the go to option on this Wildcats’ team.

They will have high expectations right away and deservedly so; they have even backed up those expectations with words so far, but the games are played on the court and they should be fascinating to watch. Randle fell off the radar a bit last year, because of a foot fracture but he is ready to shine in the spotlight again. His averages in the state title tournament were absurd and he score with ruthless efficiency next year on a loaded team.

Randle has been compared to Chris Webber, but he has a bit more power to his game and a little bit less finesse with his body movement.
