Highlight Moment:

Randle helped carry the Wildcats to the National Championship game last year thanks to back-to-back big games in the NCAA Tournament. First, the freshman tallied a double-double in Kentucky’s Sweet 16 game against Michigan with 16 points and 11 rebounds. He then attempted just ten shots against Wisconsin, but earned 16 points while adding 5 rebounds and a steal. Despite a loss in the title game, Randle contributed 10 points, 6 boards and four assists against Connecticut in his biggest game of his career thus far.

Quotes:

“Randle entered college as a consensus top-three incoming recruit with Duke's Jabari Parker and Kansas' Andrew Wiggins in the class of 2013, and mostly lived up to the hype. He was Kentucky's best player the entire season, leading a young if underwhelming Wildcats team that suffered some bad losses before finally finding its groove in the NCAA Tournament. Kentucky's run to the national championship game as a No. 8 seed gave Randle plenty of opportunities to showcase his talents to pro scouts, and he rarely disappointed.” – Ricky O’Donnell, SBNation.com

“One of the knocks on Randle — fair or not — has been his lack of blocks and steals, which some have taken to be an indication of short arms. But his wingspan measured in at seven feet and while that hardly makes him Wilt Chamberlain, it is middle-of the-pack and should not hurt his stock.” – Sean Deveney, Sporting News

“Randle was criticized for much of his freshman year for a low steal and block rate, which many attributed to having short arms. He put that rumor to rest by registering a 7-foot wingspan, more than adequate for his 6-9 (in shoes), 250-pound frame, even if his standing reach leaves something to be desired at 8-9 1/2. The 6-9 250 pound Randle measured similarly to Kevin Love, who came in at 6-7 ¾ without shoes, 255 pounds, with a 6-11 ¼ wingspan and 8-10 standing reach. - Draft Express
