Julius Randle will miss three months with a fractured right foot.
Randle is a consensus top-five player in the class of 2013.
“It’s a minor setback, but Julius is a fighter,” his mother Carolyn Kyles said. “We’ve already begun to set up rehabilitation for him and he’s a naturally a little down now, but he’ll be back before you know it. We’re just staying positive about everything. We know he’ll come back stronger than ever.”
Randle will decide between Kentucky, N.C. State, Florida, Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma and could “potentially” return toward the end of the season.
