No. 2 basketball recruit Julius Randle picks Kentucky over KU

Julius Randle, the No. 2 overall recruit in the Class of 2013 and one of KU coach Bill Self’s top targets, announced his decision to attend Kentucky on Wednesday, spurning Kansas in the process. Randle, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Prestonwood Christian Academy, would have fit seamlessly into Kansas’ frontcourt, filling a large void in a program that will be trying to reload for a 10th straight Big 12 regular-season title in 2013-14.
