Video: UK Freshman Julius Randle Press Conference

Kentucky held a news conference at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday with freshman forward Julius Randle, who announced he'll be entering the 2014 NBA draft. ESPN mock Draft has Randle going 6th and fellow UK Freshman James Young going 15th, who declared last week that he was entering the 2014 NBA Draft. Coach Calipari was on the recruiting trail today and missed Randle's announcement but had the following to say:

“I truly believe that Julius will be an even better pro than a college player,” John Calipari said. “He was Shaq’d (Shaquille O’Neal) all year – in every way. I really appreciate all that he did for this program and how he represented all of us throughout the entire year. I cannot wait to watch him shine at the next level.”
