UK released a statement Thursday announcing the signings of 2013 recruits Julius Randle, Dakari Johnson and Dominique Hawkins. The three late commitments join the Harrison twins, James Young, Marcus Lee and Derek Willis in UK’s eight-man class.
John Calipari had comments on each of the new signees. Here they are:
Calipari on Randle …
“Julius is another hard-working player who is a great student and person along with being a dominator on the court. He has that will to win that the players I’ve had who have become special have all had. That motor will be important to our success next year. Julius has the skill set to be an inside-outside guy for us. He has the ability to put it on the floor and beat guys off the dribble, but he’s also got the toughness, size and ability to score against bigger defenders. At the end of the day, he’s a true leader whose personal drive is off the charts.”
