LAWRENCE — Kansas target Julius Randle, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Prestonwood Christian Academy, was officially added to the McDonald's All-American Game roster on Wednesday after returning from a foot injury and proving himself sufficiently healthy.

Randle, rated as the No. 2 overall senior by, returned for the final five games of his high school season and helped Prestonwood to the Texas 5A state title.

Randle will announce his college decision during a televised ceremony on ESPNU at noon on March 20. He is deciding between Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, NC State, Oklahoma and Texas, although reports surfaced Wednesday suggesting Randle was no longer considering Oklahoma or NC State.

Randle visited KU during the Jayhawks' victory over Texas on Feb. 16. Kansas is still also pursuing swingman Andrew Wiggins, who visited Lawrence during KU's victory over Texas Tech on Monday night. Wiggins, the No. 1 overall player, is still considering Florida State, Kentucky, North Carolina and Kansas.

Even if Randle goes elsewhere, KU will still be represented in the McDonald's Game. Wayne Selden, a 6-5 guard from the Tilton School (New Hampshire) was previously selected for the event, which will take place April 3 at the United Center in Chicago.
