Julius Randle Picks Kentucky

03/20/2013 12:18 PM

Last night, Big Blue Nation said goodbye to Julius Mays, and now another Julius is coming to Lexington. Julius Randle committed to Kentucky this afternoon. Randle is the number one power forward in the nation and number three overall player from Plano, Texas.

Randle said earlier this year that he was “looking for a place where I can win a national championship as a freshman and a place where I will be pushed to be the best player I can be.”

Don’t worry, Julius. John Calipari will be all about toughness next year, and Kentucky is gunning for title number nine.

Watch the full video of Julius Randle’s announcement below.
