Julius Randle has a new blog

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.

Read Randle’s entire blog entry here.

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

    Julius Randle is a tricky name to yell. Try it.

    Basketball wise, that visit can not be topped. It may come down whether he wants to share the spotlight as well as being away from the state of Texas. If we get other commits that he wants to play with…it’s already over. But might as well enjoy the ride and take all the visits you can. It will probably just show him that there is truly only one place to be. LOL

    Can they chant his name since it is not an NCAA sanctioned event? I’m sure Cal thought of that…

    3 – so the NCAA supposedly has authority over the right to free speech, yet UNC’s fraudulent classes are out of their jurisdiction? wow.

    I’m intrigued by the fact that according to this young man, Derek Anderson is an “old head”.

    Wow. Well-written and good insight- the kid can ball, too. They knew his mom’s favorite dessert? Really. Amazing. Just one thing left to say… Cal gets it.

    Just goes to show how you have to stay relevant year after year to get these stud recruits, they can’t remember or just weren’t around for “The Glory Days”
    These events are genius.
