Fans' Choice: York vs. Randle



Gabe York, Orange Lutheran (Orange, Calif.)
No. 36 in the ESPNU 100
@gabeyork1
Few shooting guards can fill up the stat sheet with as much style as this Arizona recruit. Off the dribble or with his feet set, York has video-game range from the perimeter, which has helped him earn praise as one of the nation’s elite marksmen. Play him for the shot at your own peril because York has a quick first step, insane hops and a mean floater that would make Spurs guard Tony Parker proud.

Julius Randle, Prestonwood Christian (Plano, Texas)
No. 3 in the ESPNU 60
@J30_Randle
Randle might be the baller best suited to star in his own TV show. Kid’s certainly got talent, as evidenced by his gaudy 24.6 points and 12.7 rebounds per game as a sophomore, and he has a multitude of offers from college hoops royalty. Randle won’t be hurting for cameos, either, not with NBA superstar Kevin Durant lobbying the junior to play at Texas and fellow Texan Jamie Foxx showing him love during August’s Boost Mobile Elite 24.

Fans choice
Julius Randle outlasted Gabe York in a tight first round matchup. His reward is a matchup with Shabazz Muhammad, the nation's No. 1 player.
