When Andrew Harrison was asked about his future teammate Dakari Johnson’s “guarantee” of a national championship at the Jordan Brand Classic’s media day, he had a slightly different twist on the guarantee. “Guarantee? I can guarantee we’ll work hard every day.” Harrison then went on to back his teammate, “But if Dakari believes it, than I believe it too.”
Julius Randle opened up about the loaded recruiting class to Adam Zagoria. “I don’t feel the pressure or the hype. I know people have been talking about it, but I don’t go looking at that stuff. We want a national championship and that’s it. That’s all I want. I think it’s every kid’s dream to win it.”
Marcus Lee spoke to Zagoria and the media about how nothing will be guaranteed, and he expects to have to work hard for everything he gets while in Lexington. “Winning is all that matters. I don’t know about the other guys, but I believe we’re all going to have to work for the minutes we each get. It can work. Having a 12 or 13-man rotation can work.”
James Young added a quote about his newly formed friendships with his future teammates, “They’re all goofballs. They’re all really funny. We all just clicked and became friends really quickly.” Join the fun, Wiggins.
