On Opinion: KU makes it hard for recruit Julius Randle to say no

most do not remember .. I do.. in 66 when KU had star Jo Jo White , 9 years after Wilt.. Kensucky still refused to recruit minority players. was sure fun watching Texas Western woop em.. and incredibly Kensucky was allowed to retain wins after point shaving and caught several times paying players.

Looks to me like Kansucks has a shot at Randle but then again Randle likes UK and the coaching staff as does his mother. Does he want to be a bird or a cat, a tough decision. Wiggins will probably end up at Florida State, a family thing. Gordon will end up out west somewhere if he skips UK. Either way, where ever Randle goes, he will be the icing on the cake. That's probably why these top players wait until the last possible day to commit, so they can command lots of attention and increase their stock.

After what cal said yesterday I don't know why anyone would chose to go there. Especially elite athletes. He needs to speak for himself when he decides to announce that some kids are just uncoachable. There are coaches out there who could have and would have done a better job with the talent he had. Or not have chosen to try and cram that much ego onto one court and then when it backfires, cop out with "some guys areare just uncoachable. Gimme a break, if it was easy anybody would be doing it.

Im not sure which school Randle will choose b/c he has said very good things about them all. KU,Fla,NC State and UK but remember he is from Texas and the whooping KU put on his home states school just might make him want to go there to help Texas regain its top tier status which has been absent for a while. Then again there is my school UK which has the #1 recruiting class in 2013 and still has a shot at Wiggins,Randle and Gordon. It may be that with Noels injury he may just decide to come back to UK next year and then what chance would any other team have against that team especially if Cal gets 1 of the 3 aforementioned top 5 recruits this spring. I think Randle goes to Texas or Fla. but I guess he could choose some other team on his list but I wouldnt bet on it.

It won't be hard to say no, if you are going to Kentucky!
