Wildcats Get Another High-Ranking Recruit For Next Year
LEXINGTON, Ky. – The number two ranked high school prospect in the country is joining the Kentucky Wildcats. 6’9” power forward Julius Randle picked UK over Kansas, Florida, and Texas.
The senior from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, TX, announced his decision at his high school just after 1pm.
