Kentucky scores another five-star recruit

Apparently, last night's first-round exit by Kentucky in the NIT hasn't stopped another five-star recruit from committing to the Wildcats, according to SB Nation. 

Julius Randle, a 6'9" power forward out of Plano, Texas, made the announcement Wednesday that he will attend Kentucky next season. Randle had visited Kansas, Texas and Florida. The Wildcats will now have six McDonald's All-Americans in this recruiting class on the roster in 2013, already getting commits from Top 20 recruits Aaron Harrison, Andrew Harrison, and James Young.

Randle is considered the top power forward in the Class of 2013, and he is rated third by ESPN, fourth by Scout and the top overall recruit by Rivals and 24/7.
