Five-Star Recruit Young Says UK Is The Team To Beat For Him

One of the top players of 2013, to no one's surprise, has had Kentucky on the top of his list since the spring. UK is still there.

James Young is ranked as the 7th best player in the class. He sure sounds like UK has a good shot at landing him.

"They are the team to beat," Young told at the LeBron James Skills Academy. "They come out every game like it's a championship game."

The 6-foot-6 star said Kentucky's style of play is a major reason he likes the Cats.

"Their style of play is one big reason," he told Evan Daniels of "They get out in transition and their fan base is crazy and they show me a lot of love."

Young said he's planning to visit Kentucky and a few other schools in August. He plans to announce his college choice a few weeks after that.
