Kentucky small forward James Young released this statement on entering the draft.
My time at Kentucky has been special to me, something Ill always treasure, but I feel that Im ready to take the next step to the NBA, Young said. Ive learned more this year, on and off the court, about life from Coach Cal and the staff and appreciate all of their guidance and support. I cant say enough about my teammates; the journey helped us build a bond that we will always share for the rest of our lives. I would like to thank the best fans in the country, the Big Blue Nation, and I hope you guys will continue to support me as I move on. I will always bleed blue. Succeed and Proceed!
Young was very instrumental in the Cats making a run to the Title game and his dunk over the state of UCONN will always be remembered. Good Luck at the next level.
