James Young's High School Coach Claims His Former Star Will Be Eligible To Play For Kentucky

Hope he's right.

Kentucky fans have been waiting on the edge of their seats to hear whether freshmen James Young, Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison will be declared academically eligible ahead of the fall semester. And while the three McDonald's All-Americans still haven't been cleared by the NCAA, Young's high school basketball coach claims that his former star will be in a UK jersey this fall.

This morning, Coach John Pleasant was on the Leach Report discussing Young's eligibility -- Pleasant said there are no problems.

Even though nothing is official, hearing this from Young's high school coach should allow the Big Blue Nation a collective sigh of relief. We'll keep you updated when more information is released.
