Kentucky's Julius Randle to formally announce plans for draft on Tuesday

Kentucky officials have scheduled a press conference for Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 ET, at which point sources told CBSSports.com that freshman basketball player Julius Randle is expected to formally announce his decision to enter the 2014 NBA Draft.

Randle averaged 15.0 points and 10.4 rebounds this season while helping the Wildcats advance to the national championship game, where they lost to Connecticut. The 6-foot-9 forward recorded 24 double-doubles, which is a record for UK freshmen. He's a lock to be selected in the top 10 and could theoretically go in the top five.

Sunday is the deadline for underclassmen to enter the NBA Draft.
