Recently saw the tweet below and was intrigued to see that Seth Davis thinks that Julius Randle is the best player in the 2013 college basketball recruiting class.
Am I the only person who thinks Julius Randle is the best player in this class? Sure feels like it. Highly skilled and love his power game.Advertisement

Randle has been practicing a lot with Dakari Johnson this summer and it is sure to help his game. I saw Johnson played at NHSI where he was named the most outstanding player in leading his team to a high school national championship. The fact that Johnson is coming off the bench for this team is just unbelievable to me. He will bring a special defensive impact to the floor and since he won’t really need to worry about fouls, he can just go hog-wild.
Aaron and Andrew, James Young , Alex Poythress, and Julius Randle. That lineup doesn't feature a center , but mismatches are everywhere.

Not sure I totally agree that Randle is the best player in the class, but if he sticks to the fundamentals and does not settle for jumpers then I see big things in his future.
Stay tuned later today for more college basketball recruiting updates and if you have any comments feel free to Rant them below or hit me up on twitter.
