UK adds Young to 2013 haul

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - University of Kentucky coach John Calipari continues his recruiting haul for the Class of 2013.

Left-handed forward James Young is the newest addition. On Thursday, Young made his decision known on ESPNU.

“I will be headed to the University of Kentucky," Young said, pulling out a Kentucky shirt.

Young, a 6-foot-6 scoring swingman from Rochester (Mich.), also had Michigan State, Syracuse and Kansas his final four.

Young is the fourth member of Kentucky's 2013 class, joining the Harrison twins and Bullitt East big man Derek Willis. So far, Calipari has nabbed three of the top seven players in the country – and he's not even close to done. No. 5-ranked Julius Randle has the Wildcats on his final list of six, and four-star forward Marcus Lee is choosing between them and California.
