Player Bio

Julius Deion Randle was born in Dallas in 1994. Randle's mother Carolyn played collegiate basketball at the University of Texas-Arlington. She was Randle's first coach, teaming up with his sister Nastassia to dominate her son in pickup games. Randle developed into a superstar over the course of his four year career at Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, where he won state titles in his freshman, junior and senior seasons. As a senior, he averaged 32.5 points and 22.5 rebounds per game, pouring in 34 or more points and 15 or more rebounds in each of his final three contests. Ranked as the No. 2 recruit in the nation by Rivals, Randle chose the University of Kentucky over the likes of Kansas, Texas and Florida. As a pro, Randle has worked with multiple youth-oriented charity organizations, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the LA Harbor Boys & Girls Club, Toys For Tots, the Lakes Youth Foundation and Trees for Threes. Randle is a big Dallas Cowboys fan. You can follow Julius Randle on Twitter @J30_RANDLE and on Instagram @juliusrandle30.
