Posted Feb 26, 2009


Kansas kicked off the 2009-2010 recruiting season this past weekend by hosting just over 30 recruits at their annual" Junior Day." RB Joseph Randle is one of the many highly sought after recruits that KU you had on campus. Randle talked to Scout.com about his experience.

RB Joseph Randle of Southeast High School in Wichita, KS has offers from schools across the country and has recently attended the Kansas "Junior Day". Scout.com got a hold of Randle to get the scoop.

Q: You were recently at the Kansas "Junior Day", how did it go?

"It was cool. I got offered there. Mangino wanted to offer in person. He said that he wanted to make sure that I was still interested cause of some things that happened before. I told him that I was interested and I'd love to have a Kansas offer."

Q: Now that the visit is over, are you more or less interested in KU. Basically, do you see KU as a place that you could be at for four years?

"Actually, I was more interested after the visit. I seen that the coaches where cool and have no hard feelings about the past. That shows a lot about them as coaches and people. I was surprised that I liked it as much as I did.

Q: Do you have any other "Junior Day" visits scheduled?

"I might head to Kansas State for their official "Junior Day" but, I'm focused on basketball and that visit might interfere with it. I just have to wait and see.

Q: Have you picked up any new offers?

"Missouri, KU, and Texas A&M

Q: How do you feel about the Texas A&M offer?

"It's kind of far but, they got a good running back coach, Coach Randy Jordan. He played for the Raiders and was recruited and everything. I can relate to him. He got a cool personality. He's kind of cocky about his coaching ability too. He was like, I ain't going to lie, I'm the best RB coach in the country. I liked that. It showed that he was real and he's easy to believe because he has been in my shoes. He has been out there on the field and laced em' up. He's going to be able to show me how to get there and tell me the things I need to do to play in the NFL like he did." Q: How you feel about the Missouri offer?

"It's pretty decent. I wouldn't mind playing for them but, I won't truly know about any of the schools until my official visits. I'm taking all of my trips and I'll know something solid after that."

Q: So you do you have Top 5 or 6?

"No. Not really."
