West coast guard Brandon Randolph out to increase recruitment

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

INDIANAPOLIS – Because he's on the West coast, Brandon Randolph doesn't get as many opportunities to compete against the top prospects in the 2013 class. At events like the Pangos All-American Camp and Adidas Invitational, though, Randolph made the most of his chances.

The 6-foot-1 guard from St. Bernard (Calif.) believes he can hold his own against anyone.

“I think I'm up there with the best,” Randolph said. “I don't doubt myself. I'm an elite player, which is what I'm trying to show these coaches.”

Randolph is a strong scoring guard who loves to beat his man off the dribble and get to the rim. He can also knock down mid-range jumpers and floaters. He has the ability to play both guard spots, but he wants to just run the offense.

“I want to be strictly a point guard,” Randolph said. “I can make my teammates better instead of just scoring.”

San Diego State, Pepperdine, USC, Saint Mary's, Providence, Harvard and several other Pac-12 schools have all shown interest in Randolph. He wants to visit San Diego State, and has already taken trips to USC, San Diego State and Pepperdine.

“I can show all the colleges who haven't seen me yet,” Randolph said. “I'm a high-major player. But it's college, so it doesn't matter to me what level.”

He is ranked No. 84 in CBSSports.com's Top 100.
