Stanford men hoops get a verbal commitment from point guard

 

Rock Island (Illinois) senior Chasson Randle announced his verbal commitment Wednesday to attend Stanford and play basketball for coach Johnny Dawkins.

Randle, a 6-2 point guard, chose the Cardinal over Illinois and Purdue.

"I'm really working on all aspects of my game: ball handling, shooting, pulling up, getting stronger," Randle told theBootleg.com. "I'm trying to work on everything. The game is a lot quicker at the next level, so I try to work on speed with everything."

Randle, who played in the U.S national team program, learned he was admitted to Stanford two weeks ago and that may have weighed into his decision, which he wanted to make before his senior season.

"Illinois, Stanford and Purdue are all great," Randle said. "I can't say anything bad about them. Each coach, each host, each school did a great job putting together everything and showing me a good time."

For Randle, it ended a long process after he began receiving college offers following his freshman season.

"I chose Stanford because the program is growing, and it's a great fit both academically and athletically,'' Randle told ESPN. "I wanted the chance to learn the point guard position from one of the greats in coach Dawkins.''
