Another day, another accolade for Julius Randle, who was just named a CBS Preseason All-American. Randle was also named an All-American by USA Today earlier this week, and joins Andrew Wiggins, Marcus Smart, Russ Smith and Doug McDermott on CBS’ Preseason All-American First Team. Here’s what they had to say about the manchild:
F | 6-9 | FR | Kentucky
Randle projects as the best player on what projects as the nation’s best team. He’s big, strong and super-aggressive — a matchup nightmare in the frontcourt who just might lead Kentucky in points and rebounds while leading the Wildcats to a second national title in three years.
Andrew Harrison and Willie Cauley-Stein were also named third-team All-Americans, while Andrew Wiggins was given Preseason Player of the Year honors.
