College careerEdit

 
Randle with Stanford in 2014

Randle ultimately chose to play college basketball with Stanford over Illinois and Purdue due to head coach Johnny Dawkins' personal attention during the recruiting process.[7] In his freshman season, Randle averaged 13.8 points per game, was named to the Pac-12 All-Freshman team,[8] and helped lead Stanford to the 2012 National Invitation Tournament title.

Prior to his junior season, Randle was moved to the point guard position, in large part due to an injury to former starter Aaron Bright. He responded well to the move, averaging 18.8 points per game, earning first-team All-Pac-12 Conference and leading Stanford to the Sweet 16 of the 2014 NCAA tournament.[9]

Prior to his senior season, Randle was named to the watch lists for the John R. Wooden and Naismith College Player of the Year awards for national player of the year and the Bob Cousy Award for top college point guard in the country. Randle is also on the mid-season list for 25 Wooden Award finalists.[10] On January 22, 2015, Randle scored his 2,000th career point in a home loss to Arizona. With the mark he became the third player in program history to reach this milestone.[11] At season's end, he was voted first-team All-Pac-12 for the second straight season.[12] Randle was the Pac-12 scholar-athlete of the year in the 2014-15 season. He posted a game-high 25 points in the 2015 NIT Final versus Miami (FL) and earned the tournament's Most Outstanding Player award.[13] Randle, at the time of his graduation, was Stanford's all-time leading scorer with 2,375 points.[14]
