The bad news bears have plagued UK basketball in recent days. First came the Cats’ failure to win an NCAA Tournament bid, then came Tuesday’s loss to Robert Morris in the first round of the National Invitational Tournament. But good news could come to boost the mood of UK fans Wednesday when five-star recruit Julius Randle announces his college commitment.
Randle, ranked No. 2 by Rivals in the Class of 2013, will reveal his decision on ESPNU shortly after 1 p.m. Wednesday.
UK is among the last four schools in the running to land the 6-foot-9, 240-pound power forward.
