Young picks UK over Michigan St., Kansas and Syracuse

ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) - Michigan prep standout James Young says he's going to play basketball at Kentucky.

Young is ranked No. 5 on ESPN's list of top recruits, giving Kentucky three of the top five so far. The defending champions also landed highly touted Texas twin guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison.

The 6-foot-6 Young is from Rochester High School. He announced his choice Thursday on ESPNU after reportedly considering Michigan State, Kansas and Syracuse.

Young says he's always dreamed of going to Kentucky. His verbal commitment is non-binding. Players can begin signing letters of intent for the 2013-14 season Nov. 14.
