Julius Randle, Freshman, Kentucky
2013-14 Season Stats: 15 points, 10.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.8 blocks, 0.5 steals
Prior to the 2013-14 NCAA season, Kentucky big man Julius Randle was among a crop of exciting incoming freshman that included Kansas swingman Andrew Wiggins and Duke forward Jabari Parker that had the NBA world buzzing with excitement. All Randle has done since then is top the entire nation in double-doubles and lead an inexperienced Wildcats squad through to the NCAA championship game.
