University of Kentucky freshman basketball player James Young has arrived in Lexington, according to one of his childhood friends from Michigan.
Young was one of three UK freshmen who did not show up for summer classes in Lexington, which led to speculation about his eligibility for the 2013-14 season. His godfather (who is also Evan Mahone’s father) and high school coach both told the Herald-Leader this month that there were no problems and the McDonald’s All-American would be on campus in time for the fall semester. Young eliminated all doubt when he posted a picture of his official UK acceptance letter last week.
Andrew and Aaron Harrison — the other two UK freshmen who missed summer school — are also on campus. Classes start Wednesday.
