James Young Is Already Putting In Work

James Young

James Young may have just arrived in Lexington yesterday, but that did not stop the Michigan native from getting some shots in at the Joe Craft Center. Young will be one of the top three point threats for the team this season, and he is clearly focused on honing his sharpshooting even more.

Now get the young man some blue gear. Red is for little brother.

    DW – I can only assume they had a different photo up when you made that comment because that dude is clearly shooting left handed in the photo posted now.

    BIgBlueDaddy – Me and my Gf are going to the game and will be hitting up Broadway after the game. I dont know what bar everyone goes to but I would like to know. When we go downtown we usually go to Broadway Brewhouse or Full Moon Saloon.

    15… You do realize that because he got accepted into uk, that means that he is already cleared

    I love this picture. For a kid who knew he really wanted to go to UK and committed pretty early, it must be a tremendous feeling for him to be able to get into that beautiful facility and shoot the basketball as a Cat. Can you imagine? I can imagine him getting on campus and being super excited about going to that gym and getting up his first shots as a Cat-awesome! This photo has got me more excited than anything else for the upcoming season. I’ve been saying for a long time that JY is the player I’m most excited to see in the Blue and White. He is smooth, efficient, and if it was a challenge for him to qualify, then I love him even more! He is living his dream and putting his scintillating talent to work, just like the top Gaines Scholars and Professors at UK are doing-and it is unlikely that many of them will ever achieve at a level much higher in their fields than he will in his own.

    Really looking forward to seeing this guy play and think he doesn’t get nearly enough attention……yet. Go Cats!

    Nice website upgrade but what are the inverted G symbols to the left of each comment are they numbers on others website? I see one has a photo.

    #5 thought he was shooting at the far basket. I did too at first. On second look, he’s clearly not.

    What a lovely sight.

    James Young for three, right in Russ Smith’s eye.

    Kid won’t score 5 pts vs the ville!! Blackshear will lock him up along with those other overhyped clowns!!

    I met james young and his family on a flight to lex from Detroit. Grounded and articulate young man whose family is very supportive and insightful. This kid has not gotten the attention he deserves. I predict he may become our go to guy in the clutch and he will undoubtedly be our best three threat. Welcome to kentucky, James.

    @30, HAHAHAHAHA UK will have too many weapons for any one of your players to lock anyone down. Keep dreaming.

    Sorry #30, but Lousville’s brand of fouling, I mean defense, won’t fly at Rupp. UofL has a serious height and talent disadvantage. Get ready for the a$$ whoopin’.

    #27 I think Young has probably cleared too, but just because UK accepted him doesn’t mean he’s cleared! Two completely different circumstances! Sometimes kids are partial qualifier and enroll in school but have to set out a year!
