James Young is set to decide between Kentucky, Michigan State, Kansas and Syracuse on Thursday, but is he really considering all four schools?
We highly doubt it.
Like, really, really, really doubt it.
We don’t believe it at all.
Not even a little bit.
As Evan Daniels pointed out on Scout.com, Kentucky is really the only school still involved with James Young, the fifth-overall player in the ESPN Top 100. Young visited Kentucky during the last weekend of September and loved everything about the program, its facilities, and UK’s campus. He had originally planned to visit Michigan State not long after Lexington, but that trip was cancelled and a source told Scout that Michigan State has pulled out of his recruitment. Kansas and Syracuse also failed to land visits from Young.
With Kentucky being his longtime favorite and the only school to receive a visit, Young’s ESPNU recruiting special is setting up to be the least suspenseful television program ever. It’ll be like turning on Call of the Wildman and watching the Turleman pick between Harvard, Yale, or rescuing a swamp rabbit with his bare hands in Breathitt County.
Kentucky fans should be more nervous about that first home exhibition game against Northwood.
Come on down.
