Jeff Sheppard has not seen any of UK’s incoming freshman players play, but he heard plenty about Julius Randle from former Cat and current NBA standout DeMarcus Cousins.
“He said ‘that Randle kid is phenomenal.’ He says is a top five draft pick right now,” Sheppard said. “DeMarcus does not give out many compliments at all. He is pretty proud of his ability. He says everybody else (coming into UK) is only alright. That means they are very good and special.
“But for him to call out Randle said a lot coming from him. I think that means you can really expect big things from Randle.”
