Top-50 wing Brandon Randolph just released his Top 12, and your Villanova Wildcats are no longer in the running for the 4-star prospect.
I truly would like to thank all 29 schools that have been recruiting me. honored and blessed‼️ This my Big 12 : pic.twitter.com/mUKcgo7WVT— ✨Bran (@brandolph902) July 24, 2016
Randolph has seen his stock soar after a strong high school season for Westtown (Pa.) and a solid summer with the PSA Cardinals (N.Y.). Randolph took an unofficial visit to Villanova in early June, but it looks like he's going to look elsewhere for his college destination.
While the focus remains squarely on Lonnie Walker, another wing would be ideal in the class to replace the productivity of Josh Hart and Kris Jenkins. The staff's focus will likely now shift to both Jordan Tucker (scheduled to visit August 24th) and Jermaine Samuels.
Best of luck to Brandon, we hardly knew ya!
