Lee’s announcement caused some buzz around Lexington that Randle was turned off of UK because of the big man. Randle’s mom says this isn’t true.
“We’re happy for the young man and his family,” Carolyn Kyles told SNY.tv Saturday in reference to the 6-foot-8 Lee, who pledged to Kentucky last week, becoming the fifth member of John Calipari’s 2013 recruiting class.
