You’re going to want to watch Julius Randle tonight

Julius Randle is a man. It’s almost unfair he’s allowed to play high school basketball. At the Peach Jam last weekend, we watched him muscle his way to the rim through double and triple teams and score at will. And when he wasn’t putting up points of his own, he made crisp, no-look passes to open teammates like an elite point guard. Again, it’s unfair he’s allowed to play high school basketball.

Don’t believe me?

Watch ESPNU tonight.

Randle and his Texas Titans AAU team will take on Florida’s Each 1 Teach 1 in ESPNU’s second televised game from the Orlando Super Showcase. The game airs at 7:00 ET and can also be found on ESPN3 for those of you without ESPNU.

As an added bonus, you’ll get to see Matt Jones, Randle’s AAU teammate and a Duke commit, jack up three-pointers like he’s the only guy on the court. It only took about two minutes of action for KSR Matt Jones and I to decide we hate him and he’s a perfect fit for the Blue Devils.

Seven o’clock.

You’ll want to see this.

    I don’t understand why any adult person ho is not a scout would choose to watch an AAU game, no thanks.

    Got to speak with Randle for a little bit at the City of Palms last winter. On the court we all know what he can do but let me tell you he is a polite, thoughtful, well-spoken guy off the court. He carries himself with no aura that he thinks he is special. Even then he commented how strongly he was looking at Kentucky and he really liked my hat. I’ve had my fingers crossed since then that he’d pick the Big Blue.

    Do you really “hate” a 17yr old kid? Just because he decided to come to Shooting Guard U? Hopefully he’ll be the reason Randle comes to Duke. Either way, he’s #19 overall and the best shooter in the Class of 2013. If he didn’t play with Randle he’d get even more attention. I’ll definitely be DVR’ing this game.
