The start of the 2013-14 men’s basketball season may still be almost five months away, but the next Wildcat team is already taking shape. Five of the eight incoming freshmen are already on campus with Aaron Harrison, Andrew Harrison and James Young arriving as soon as this weekend.
“I think they’re going to come in this weekend, and what we’re hoping is that they’ll be able to flow into the six-week (summer school) session,” said UK head coach John Calipari on the Southeastern Conference summer coaches’ teleconference Monday. “And if they’re not, they’ll stay a couple more weekends and they’ll be fine and be here.
“I’m excited about those three. I wish they would have been here for the eight-week (session), but it’s happened before with Nerlens (Noel) and some other guys we’ve had. They’ve had things to finish up, but they’re fine.”
