Julius Randle is following in our footsteps and teaming up with the USA Today sports network for his new blog, Baseline J. In his first entry, Randle writes all about his official visit to Kentucky:
We went to the Alumni Game after that and it was really live. I was sitting behind the bench and then Drake walked in and the whole place went just crazy. I mean they just went wild for Drake.
Then throughout the game they started chanting my name. It was just crazy how loud they were. I’m a pretty laid back guy so I felt a little awkward at first. Drake and the players turned around smiling because it was just such a loud chant. I just kind of waved and they went crazy. That was definitely the loudest chant I’ve ever heard.
The BBN (Big Blue Nation) fans are great. It’s hard to describe how that makes you feel. It’s pretty unreal.
The game was fun too. Mostly all of the players from the last three years or so were there. Some of the old heads were there too, but I didn’t know as many of them. I couldn’t talk to the NBA guys because of rules, but just seeing them there was cool. It’s definitely one big family.

It’s a really cool perspective from the star recruit.
