Kentucky's loss to Robert Morris in the first round of the NIT put fear into the Kentucky faithful but it was not enough to scare off Julius Randle, a 6-foot-9 forward from Plano, Texas and the No. 2-rated high school recruit in the country according to Rivals.com.
Randle selected Kentucky as his future school Wednesday over Kansas, Florida and Texas. Randle was forced to sit out part of his senior year of high school with a foot injury, but came back before the end of the season and continued his dominant play.
Kentucky already had one of the top recruiting classes in the country, but the addition of Randle leaves little question to what school has the No. 1 class. Along with Randle, Kentucky is bringing in Andrew and Aaron Harrison, Dakari Johnson and James Young, all who have been ranked in the top 10 in the country on various recruiting websites.
The biggest question with the Wildcats now is who will be leaving for the NBA Draft in June and how Kentucky can juggle all of these players who expect to play immediately.
