James Young deciding between Syracuse and Kentucky, according to a source

James Young, the No. 8-ranked player in the Class of 2013 according to Rivals, has reportedly narrowed his commitment list to two basketball programs -- the Syracuse Orange and Kentucky Wildcats -- a source close to the situation has told 247Sports' Jerry Meyer.

Young (6'6, 200 pounds) is expected to make an unofficial visit to the University of Kentucky this weekend, he has already had an in-home visit from John Calipari. Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim has also already made an in-home visit with resident of Rochester, MI. Young has also been considering the Michigan St. Spartans, Kansas Jayhawks and Ohio St. Buckeyes.

Over the summer, Young participated in the Lebron James Skills Academy and noted, "he's looking to play in a transition offense that will be the best first for his skill set".

According to ESPN recruiting services, Young is, "an explosive left handed scorer with a legit long range jumper beyond the arc."

It is still unclear when Young will make his commitment announcement.
