Keep an eye on Kentucky’s Julius Randle this year.
He has a unique combination of size (6’9”, 250 lbs) and skill that will cause distressful nightmares for opposing coaches and players before they face the Wildcats this upcoming season.
Randle will be trouble to contend with for even the best power forwards in college hoops.
He is capable of scoring at will in either the post or when he faces up.
Randle will stand out even on a team as talented as this year’s UK squad.
However, like so many of the Wildcats stars, Randle will only be in Lexington for a year.
That’s why it is huge that Kentucky head coach keeps reeling in the best of the best high school players.
Following the likes of Anthony Davis and Randle might be intimidating to some incoming players.
Do not expect Karl Towns, Jr to be overwhelmed when he arrives on campus next year.
He will be the next great Kentucky frontcourt phenom.
Towns has the size of an NBA center (7’1”, 235 lbs) and the perimeter skills of a small forward.
Towns’ versatility is rare and will make him every bit of a problem for Wildcats’ opponents in 2014.
