UK’s star-studded freshman class was once again a point of discussion in ESPN analyst Chad Ford’s weekly NBA Draft chat Wednesday.
Ford released his “Big Board” earlier Wednesday, and the new list showed a lowered draft stock for most of UK’s freshmen. Julius Randle still holds the No. 2 spot — behind Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins — but Randle was the only Wildcat in the Top 10.
Next came James Young at No. 12, Andrew Harrison at No. 14, and sophomores Willie Cauley-Stein at No. 25 and Alex Poythress at No. 28. Freshmen Dakari Johnson and Aaron Harrison were listed among the “next five in.”
