James Young gets a very Kentucky-esque new tattoo

Future Kentucky Wildcat, 2013 five-star prospect James Young got some new ink over the weekend. And I believe the Kentucky connection is pretty self explanatory. If this isn’t the best tattoo you’ve seen all day, I don’t know what is. Go Cats.

    Wow, I wonder if this functions as a signed LOI? So many recruits considering UK, this seems to be a good way to weed them out.

    That’s a lions head isn’t it? Am I missing something? I see a basketball, Kentucky plays basketball. Is that the connection?

    Yeah that’s a lions head. I guess they are both cats?

    Should of waited til he was on the west coast with a pocket full of cash. But its still a cool tattoo.

    That is a lion not a wildcat.

    You all are stupid. The kid is obviously excited about being a wildcat and y’all are ragging on his tattoo. It maybe a lion but who cares. This just proves the point that many people have that it doesn’t take an IQ to be a Uk basketball fan. I’m sure your next post will be to ask why Richie is getting more playing time.

    Slow down there #10, technically a lion is a “wild” “cat” so chill out.
    I don’t even like tatoos, but that one is pretty cool.

    It’s a lion with a unibrow.

    A lion is one of the four Big Cats. Guess this is his symbol of being the 4th Big Cat to commit to UK!

    Should have said ONE of the 4 BIG CATS to commit.

    10 – Don’t be so dense, they aren’t ‘ragging’ on his tattoo, they are ‘ragging’ on the writer who said the Kentucky connection is pretty self-explanatory. Try and understand what you are reading before flying off the handle.

    Do you think he was going for a Wildcat and screwed it up or he wanted to be king of the jungle? Would be a lot of arm space to use on a mascot for your one year college career.

    Thank god he didn’t roll with phallic cat down his arm.

    I am not much of an “ink” person myself, but that tatoo is really awesome!!! Go cats!!!

    Who knows what Chane did to get kept from media for half the year? grades? Conduct? Refusal to tighten up linebeard?

    Another example of how comical UK fans are (and predictable). You guys think this “lion” tattoo is so cool but rip on UL players for their ink. Interesting how that works out, huh?

    He got it because he’s a Leo and loves the game. It’s really not that hard to figure out. I seriously doubt he got a lion to symbolize Uk. Awesome tat and very well done. But was not done for UK. Lol u all r dumb

    #23 – if that’s the right answer, then I’m glad I’m wrong. If I ever need the birth month of any teenager, then I’ll know where to find you. Just look up the registry.

    No one is criticizing the kid. We are criticizing the reach to connect that tat to his choice of college. It has a basketball. It has a large cat. However, it has nothing to do with uk. And for once a Louisville fan might be right.

    Like others in this post have pointed out…a lion is a wild cat. Good god, go turn on Animal Planet.

    wtf are you people talking about? what makes this look like a lion more than a wildcat? i thought it looked like a wildcat initially, but a run of dumbasses in here actually caused me to take the time to do a quick google image search. the only difference i can really tell in the center of the face of the two is that a lion has a longer nose, making this pic look much more like the pics of wildcats … so stfu dbags … this tattoo is awesome

    I am a mountain lion and I represent UK. ESPNUs UK logo is the tail of a mountain lion, not a bobcat. Nike also makes some UK apparel featuring a mountain lion. Wildcat = general term.

    Maybe it states that he has the heart of a lion.
