Julius Randle’s recruitment has gotten really hard to read in the past few weeks. For a long time, many thought he favored the Cats, then NC State and their street art murals, and now, it seems he’s taken a shine to the Kansas Jayhawks. Randle’s latest blog on USA Today’s site details his visit and how he’ll handle the rest of his recruitment. Here are the highlights, which I’m afraid aren’t so UK-friendly:
On Kansas’ fans: “Those fans were really loud. I mean those fans were just crazy. They might’ve been the best fans I’ve seen.” (Ouch)
On the Kansas visit: “That was a great visit. Kansas really made a big impression on me. I know I’d have a legit chance to win a national championship there.”
On the deciding factor in his decision: “The place that fits me and the place that I’ll be happy. Wherever I felt the happiest is the place that I’m gonna go to.”
Randle says he doesn’t need to have any more visits from coaches because he’s got all the information he needs. He’s expected to make a decision in March.
