UK signee James Young tweeted Monday morning that he will be in Lexington this weekend for UK’s regular-season finale against Florida.
Young used his official visit for Big Blue Madness, but he still hasn’t seen a UK game in Rupp Arena. The Cats host Florida at noon Saturday.
Young has been sidelined the past four games with a calf injury but will play
and is not expected to play for Rochester High (Mich.) in tonight’s playoff opener. Rochester is 2-2 in the four games that Young has missed. The Falcons had won eight straight leading up to the injury, with Young scoring more than 30 points and grabbing more than 15 rebounds in six of those games.
The 6-foot-6 wing player is also one of five finalists for the Michigan Mr. Basketball award.
