Randall to Announce Decision

One of the best available guards in the class of 2015 will be making his college decision on Tuesday. Craig Randall II, a 6-4 guard from Shadow Mountain High School in Arizona will make his choice known then.

Per his father, Craig Randall will be choosing between DePaul, Nevada, St. John’s and VCU.

Randall had also been receiving interest from Ole Miss.

All four of the programs that Randall is considering have new head coaches.

Blue Demons coach Dave Leitao travelled to Arizona last Wednesday to see Randall. He’s looking to fill one of three available scholarships for the class of 2015. Randall would help fill a spot in the backcourt following Durrell McDonald’s decision to transfer out of the DePaul program.

The left-handed combo guard was named the Arizona State Division II player of the year.

Randall was also named to the All-Tournament team at the Beach Ball Classic in South Carolina in December.

Randall is originally an Ohio native who moved to Arizona for his senior season. He’s been learning under the leadership of former NBA point guard Mike Bibby, who is the head coach at Shadow Mountain.

Randall averaged 21.2 points, 5.6 assists, five rebounds and 2.5 steals per game in his senior season at Shadow Mountain.

Scout.com’s Rob Harrington scouted Randall last December.

“Randall is a skinny southpaw who likes to attack off the dribble and get out in transition,” said Harrington. “He also can stroke in long jump shots, which while streaky are another source of offensive prowess. He has become noted for his quick defense as well.”

April 27 Update: Randall has postponed his decision until a later date.
