With the commitment of Marcus Lee and the impending visit of Aaron Gordon, it seems that Kentucky may be losing ground with Julius Randle. There are only so many forward positions on the team to go around and logic states that Randle may look elsewhere towards a team with less competition.
But that won’t stop the Harrison Twins from trying to get Randle to join them at Kentucky. USA Today high school sports reporter Jason Jordan tweeted this interesting statement last night:
An interesting development indeed, especially if you follow the rumor mill that says that Randle and the Harrisons don’t get along. Both parties have denied this rumor multiple times, and if the Twins are trying this hard to get Randle, then you have to discount the negativity.
It’s going to be a long time before Randle commits and the Wiggins factor only adds to the excitement. Kentucky already has the best class in 2013, but the chances of it becoming legendary look to be increasing.
Don’t ask John Calipari who is going to start in tonight’s exhibition against Norwood, because he doesn’t even know yet.
Don’t know who is going to start yet,” he said when asked about lineups. “Don’t know, still trying to figure some stuff out. What I’m tinkering with is combinations. I’m trying to figure out, when these guys are in together how do we play, when that group is in together how do we play. That’s what we are trying to do.
If I had to guess, I’m thinking Ryan Harrow, Archie Goodwin, Alex Poythress, Kyle Wiltjer and Nerlens Noel will be the starters. I also think Julius Mayes will be the first guy off the bench and that you will see Willie Cauley-Stein early and often. I also think the twin towers will makes their glorious debut.
The truth is that there are a ton of possibilities with the lineups and it is going to be interesting to see what John Calipari does with his players.
