The Julius Randle and Kentucky connection is seemingly growing stronger by the second. I’ve found an interesting picture, and Twitter conversation that would indicate Julius Randle may be wearing the Kentucky blue and white next season. Here is my first bit of evidence.
The caption on Instagram says “Coolin with my young-ins @marquanbotley n @juliusrandle30”
While it’s not burning evidence that Randle is going to break out the paperwork and sign tomorrow, it’s a good indicator that he at least likes the ‘Cats a lot. This picture was taken as early as today, and Randle is rockin’ that blue Wildcats hoodie. My last indicator comes from a North Carolina State recruit and fan.
Anthony Barber is a 6’2 point guard who is committed to North Carolina State. As you can see above, the N.C. State fan above was sending a tweet to Barber. The fan was obviously excited about the possibilities of Randle joining Barber in Raleigh, but Barber says “he’s prolly gonna go to UK.”
At this point, I’d be very surprised not to see Randle in a Kentucky jersey next season. There has been a ton of heat between both sides in the past couple of weeks, and now Randle decides to make his college decision on March 20th on ESPNU. The Harrison Twins, James Young, and Dakari Johnson all announced their decisions on ESPNU, and they became ‘Cats. The formula looks for Randle to follow suit. Maybe they should consider renaming the telecast to ESPNUK?
