Julius Randle is the top-ranked prospect in the Rivals150 for 2013 and recently cut his list down to six – Texas, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina State, Florida and Oklahoma. Randle, a forward at Prestonwood Christian (Plano, Texas), has agreed to give USA TODAY High School Sports exclusive access into his world by chronicling everything from intimate details about his recruitment to his everyday life in a monthly blog.
What’s going on everybody! It’s me, of course, and I’m excited to let you guys know that I’m back on the court. I know most of you already know that, but I’m still excited to be playing the game that I love.
Ya know, I was actually a little nervous, which was a little weird for me. I think I was just so excited to get back. I had a lot of fun out there. To be honest, I didn’t feel anything wrong with my foot. Nothing.
The only thing was I was a little rusty, but that comes with reps so I’m not worried about that. I still put up solid numbers (19 points, 10 rebounds and three assists) for the short time I actually played. I’m getting my rhythm back now. My explosion feels great too. I’m just excited man! Everyday my foot is getting stronger and stronger and my timing is getting better and better. I can still hoop!
