Randle will be announcing his college choice on ESPNU on March 20th. Where does everyone think he will go?
I think its a 50/50 chance he goes to Kentucky or Kansas
I think it'd be cool if he went to NC State.
I still think Texas is the dark horse
I think either Kansas or Florida. Kansas for their success this season and Florida because they have Kasey Hill who is a PG that can compliment his skills nicely.
I don't think he'll opt for Kentucky as they've been underwhelming by their standards and have several freshmen who don't look likely to declare this year.
Texas, Kansas, and Florida are his top 3. I'm hoping he goes to KU.
I'd say he's headed to Lawrence. There hasn't been a lot of positive stuff coming from Lexington recruiting gurus recently, so I would think Kentucky is out of it.
I think it's always been Kansas or Texas.
I want him to go to NC State to make the ACC even more amazing next year or Kansas because I love watching them and think Bill Self is an awesome coach, but I really bet he goes to Texas. If Myck Kabongo stuck around I would like the Texas choice, but he probably won't.
Even if Kabongo did leave they wouldn't be lacking for talent. They have talent there, it just happens to be all super young. Texas was the youngest team in college basketball. Every single player in their rotation this yr is either a freshman or a sophomore.
I agree Siggy, Texas is like a poor man's Kentucky with talent and no experience.
Problem being Rick Barnes is an awful coach as well. He gets some absolute studs occasionally (Durant, Aldridge), but has no idea how to utilize their strengths to the betterment of the team.
I am thinking he goes to NC State. I just think with the ACC now unquestionably becoming the premiere conference, thats where he will go. If he goes to State and Wiggins goes to FSU, and Parker at Duke.....the ACC will be off the charts next year. Regardless, I definitely dont think he is going to UK.
I have a feeling Julius Randle will end up going to Kansas and Wiggins will then pick UNC.
This is illogical, why?
FWIW, Dave Telep says that it's down to Texas, Kentucky and Kansas.
