There were a few reports late Wednesday afternoon that Kentucky freshman forward Julius Randle had made up his mind and will be heading off to the NBA Draft. Well, at least for now, hold off on figuring out where he fits on your mock draft board as Randle has denied that he has decided anything about his future, and says he hasn’t even talked with his family yet.
Idk 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.

Now of course, it is still expected that he will declare for the June event eventually, however we never really know for sure until we hear from the player themselves, and Randle obviously doesn’t have anything like that in mind just yet.
Randle is coming off a season in which he helped lead Kentucky, along with four other freshman, to the NCAA Tournament national championship game.
