Stop me if you’ve heard this. Willie Cauley-Stein was an unstoppable wide receiver in high school; A seven-footer snagging catches that no 17-year-old could ever dream of. The now-famous story was regurgitated by commentators across the country and Kentucky fans quickly became numb to the connection.
We’ve heard other, similar stories about talented young hoopers carving out success on the gridiron. LeBron James was an all-state wide receiver in high school. Allen Iverson was named Virginia football Player of the Year in 1992. It’s not uncommon to see high-level basketball players who once excelled in football.
But let me put a little twist on that original fan-favorite story regarding WCS. Imagine Julius Randle lining up on defense opposite of Josh Allen last season.

Randle has officially spoken it into existence. How many years of eligibility can we squeeze the NCAA out of for Randle? I also love that there is a dejected Florida Gator in the background. I’m sure either of the New York football teams could use a 6-foot-9, 250-pound pass rusher.
The former Wildcat loves to represent the BBN and we love him for it.
