Young & the Twins all set for 2013-14?
By Matt Giles
It is usually around the time of the July 4th that people begin to question whether top prospects will in fact step foot on their respective campuses for the next season. In Gainesville, it is still very much unclear if Chris Walker will don a Gator uniform next fall, and Josh Pastner continues to wait for the official word that Kuran Iverson and Pookie Powell will be eligible for their freshmen seasons. However, at Kentucky, the uncertainty begins even before summer classes start, and there was concern when whispers continued to filter out of Lexington that neither James Young nor Andrew or Aaron Harrison were on campus for UK's eight-week summer school session.
Kyle Tucker of the Courier-Journal spoke with the twins' father and Young's godfather, and reports (via Twitter) that all signs point for the three prospects to play for Kentucky in 2013-14. Aaron Harrison Sr. confirms his sons are taking some classes but '[have] a different load than the others,' whereas Young is also '...looking forward to playing in the fall.' Citing student-privacy laws, Kentucky will not comment on either of the prospects' summer enrollment statuses, but according Tucker's reports (and others), it would seem apparent that these three players, who comprise a substantial portion of Kentucky's highly-ranked class, will be ready and eligible for the 2013-14 season.
