Kentucky freshman Julius Randle took to Twitter tonight — Kentucky does not make players available for interviews — to deny an ESPN report that he has already decided to declare for the NBA draft.
He posted: “Idk (I don’t know) who reported what but I haven’t made up my mind about the draft yet. Haven’t even talked to my family about it. So it’s all false.”
Randle averaged 15 points and 10.4 rebounds per game, both team highs. He had just 10 points and six rebounds in the national title game loss but had 24 double-doubles in 40 games, the nation’s best total. He’s projected as a likely top five pick if he does enter the draft.
