Flint native James Young can now throw up the ‘roc’ now that he has signed with Jay Z‘s Roc Nation Sports. The Kentucky Wildcats star will be entering the NBA draft to chase his dream of being a professional basketball player.
Young played high school basketball at Rochester High School and continued playing basketball at Kentucky averaging 14.3 points and 4.3 rebounds a game according to MLive. Young is the second male basketball player behind Kevin Durant to sign with the hip-hop legend’s sports agency.
Young is projected to be drafted in the mid first round. We’re unsure of which team will pick him up but with Roc Nation Sports behind him, he’ll be fine.
