Why is John Calipari such a master recruiter? He flew from Milwaukee to Georgia on Thursday twice. He was going back and forth seeing the Harrison twins and Julius Randle, among other players, at the Peach Jam.
Randle is 6-foot-8 power forward from Texas who Scout.com ranks as the third best player in 2013, but he may just be the best. He's been impressive in front of Cal at the Peach Jam averaging 26 points and 14 rebounds through three games.
As you can imagine, every school wants him. But when you ask him about Kentucky, he gets a big smile on his face.
"Kentucky says it all. I mean Coach Cal gets the job done. He's a great coach, he's a player's coach, he's a great person. Kentucky's a great school. You've seen what they've done the last three years and what he's done the last couple years in the draft so I mean that says it all," said Randle.
Randle plans to visit UK at some point.
