Recruiting: Randle Says 'I'm A Cowboy'
But after meeting with Gillespie this afternoon, Randle says he's a solid commitment for Oklahoma State.
"The new coaching staff at KU has talked to me, and all that stuff got out. I've told everyone and my coaches know that I'm a Cowboy. I ain't going nowhere, and I'll be signing with them on Feb. 4," Randle said.
Will Randle be making an official visit to Kansas? "No, I'm not. They wanted me to come up there on the 22nd (of January), but I probably won't," he said.
Oklahoma State will have Kendall Hunter and Travis Miller returning at running back next season, while Jeremy Smith and Kye Staley are recovering from injuries. Dexter Pratt redshirted this past season. But Randle is looking forward to the competition.
"Well, they probably recruited the wrong guy if I wasn't planning on going in and trying to play (right away). Of course they want somebody to come in and try to compete for a job," said Randle, who is averaging around 9 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds for the Southeast basketball team.
"I'm going to try to get in there and compete and work my butt off and see what it takes me. That's my plan. I'll just let the coaches do their job, and they'll make the decision on who plays or who redshirts. I'll just control what I can control, and that's my effort and how hard I'm working," he said.
In the meantime, he says rumors that his commitment to Oklahoma State is not solid are not true.
"I've been telling a lot of (other schools) not to waste their time on me. I'm going to Oklahoma State. That's the only school I care to talk to," said Randle.
