Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
Randle's school apparently released a statement today saying that the elite recruit will only consider six schools... and Baylor isn't one of them.
Here's just one of many tweets about it. Kline didn't break the story, I just don't know who did.
Julius Randle narrowed his list to six schools - Kentucky, NC State, Florida, Texas, Kansas & Oklahoma - per a release from his school.— Alex Kline (@TheRecruitScoop) October 2, 2012
This is really, really strange to me. I didn't think we had a real shot at Randle anymore, but the rumors was that we had made his final four even as short as a week ago. Now apparently we're out completely along with Duke and UNC. And there's the fact that his school broke the news, not one of the recruiting services.
I don't know what's going on here at this point, but it seems clear that we're out on Julius Randle.
Well, Dave Telep says it was actually a tweet from PCA. Weird.

By the way, Ashley Hodge says this is confirmed now with our staff, so it's confirmed.
