Kentucky Freshman James Young Will Enter The NBA Draft

Well Kentucky fans, you knew that there was no way that all of your star freshmen would be returning for another year in Lexington. Thursday afternoon, shooting guard James Young, who averaged 14.3 points per game and 4.3 rebounds per contest, officially made the decision that he'll leave college for the NBA.

Young, who stands at 6-foot-6 and was a matchup problem for most teams in the NCAA Tournament, put the world on notice with a thunderous dunk over multiple UConn defenders in the national championship game. He is expected to be taken in the middle of the first round in June.

Kentucky fans will now turn their attention to Julius Randle, Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison - all three are expected to turn pro as well.
