Julius Randle, a 6-foot-9 senior basketball forward from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, today orally committed to Kentucky in a news conference at his high school televised by ESPNU.

Randle, who is ranked No. 2 nationally by Rivals.com, chose UK over Kansas, Florida and Texas.

Randle, a McDonald's All-American, averaged 28.8 points, 15 rebounds and four blocks in five state playoff games while leading Prestonwood (TX) Christian to the 5A state title. He averaged 32.5 points and 15.5 rebounds in the Final Four. He missed most of the regular season because of a fracture in his foot.

Ku has a great class it appears..I have seen their videos. Very impressive. Calipari would like to have several.

Do any of the three look interested? Did any of the three of the Wiggins family look interested? Don't think so. We have good kids on the way and a great group of kids here just waiting to show their skills. We will be good without the top two.

Even after UK lost in the first round of the NIT last night. But it's an oral commitment - there's time to change his mind!

Checking out the top 100 recruits on ESPN, it is difficult to imagine how so many Kentucky recruits plan on major minutes on the floor next year. Add the 6 appearing on that page to the freshmen currently on UK's roster, there will be a lot of highly recruited players riding on their bench next year. Calipari will have his hands full making a team out of this collection of high school stars. Looks good on paper; but, no doubt, a lot of egos to feed!
