In his latest blog entry for USA Today, 2013 power forward Julius Randle from Plano (Tex.) Prestonwood Christian once again dispelled the notion that he wouldn't want to play with twin guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison. The twins from Fort Bend (Tex.) Travis committed to the Kentucky Wildcats last month.
There had been rumors earlier this summer that Randle would not choose the Wildcats if the Harrisons picked Kentucky. The rumor was that Randle, from the greater Dallas area, would not want to share the spotlight with the Harrisons, from the greater Houston area. The players have a "complicated history," having faced each other multiple times before in head-to-head AAU matchups.
In a prior interview with Adam Zagoria of Zags Blog, Randle definitively shot down those rumors.
"Yeah, I don’t know where that came from, but that’s not true at all," Randle said.
"I mean, people try to start rumors all the time. I don’t know if it’s for Websites or anything, but I have no problem playing with them."
Randle's latest blog post goes one step further, as Randle discusses the potential benefits of playing with the Harrison twins. Oh yeah, the last guy to do that? James Young, who ended up committing to Kentucky a week after the Harrisons.
Oh, the other thing I want to clear up is the crazy rumor about there being some sort of beef between Andrew andand me. That is the craziest thing I’ve ever heard, honestly. I’ve tried to ignore it but everyone is making it a big thing. I can tell you, 100 percent, that all three of us are cool. I’ve got the utmost respect for those guys and their games and we’re actually cool with each other. Every time I see them, we talk and hang out so I don’t know where that came from.
I love that they’re at Kentucky too.
Potentially playing with two great guards would make it easier for me. I think that we would have a legit shot to win a national championship in our first year because I don’t see any guards in the country that would be better than them.
In his blog, Randle also talks about his latest official visit (the Florida Gators on October 5), an upcoming unofficial visit to the Oklahoma Sooners on October 27, and his rationale for cutting the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels.
