Randle, who averaged 15 points, 10.4 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game, is projected to be a top-five pick in the upcoming June draft. Kentucky has already lost one player from its team this past season to the NBA; shooting guard James Young declared last week. Centers Willie Cauley-Stein and Marcus Lee both will be returning to school for at least one more season.
There have yet to be decisions made by freshman guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison and sophomore forward Alex Poythress. Each could be first round picks.
