Randle late addition to McD's game

Julius Randle is a physically imposing player.

Two weeks away from his scheduled school announcement, elite prospect Julius Randle received some good news from the McDonald’s All American Game.

Randle, a 6-9, 250-pound forward from Plano (Texas) Prestonwood Christian High School who was out the majority of the season with a broken foot, has been added to the East squad for the McDonald’s All American Game.

Only three players in the history of the McDonald’s AA Game have been late additions to the roster, and Randle is the first late addition since 1980.

An attacking and bruising player, Randle also has a high level skill game at his disposal. He is the No. 2 ranked prospect by both 247Sports and the 247Composite.

After returning from his injury, Randle led his team to a TAPPS 5A state championship. He scored 34 points and grabbed 22 rebounds in the final. 10 of those points were in the overtime period. In the semifinals Randle scored 40 points and had 15 rebounds.

Prior to the all star game which is April 3, Randle will announce his college decision on March 20.

Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina State, Oklahoma and Texas are still on his list, but Kansas and Kentucky are considered the frontrunners to land him.
