BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Florida big man Patric Young isn't dazzled by all the hype surrounding Kentucky's latest crop of hotshot NBA prospects.
The Wildcats are the favorites to win the Southeastern Conference with eight signees, including six McDonald's All-Americans.
Young said Thursday at SEC media days that he's hoping "they think they can just walk on the court and they're going to beat everybody." Alluding to the possibility that some of those highly rated prospects could head to the NBA after their freshman season, Young added that "one and done is not for everybody."
The defending SEC champion Gators might have the best shot at challenging the Wildcats for the title after three consecutive trips to the regional finals in the NCAA tournament.
They have seven players returning from a 29-8 team.
