The top player for the class of 2015 got an offer from John Calipari Monday night. Karl Towns tweeted the news himself.
Towns is 15 years old, but he's getting better every day. He's already played for Coach Cal on the Dominican Republic national team. Because of that, he spent some time in Lexington this summer.
"It is helping me tremendously. I am learning different styles of basketball. I am playing against professionals and guarding Al Horford every day. It is making me a better post player, a better defender, and I am becoming smarter. This has given me new knowledge and new ability that I never thought I would have," Towns said in July.
Towns has it together both on and off the court. He's also tops in his class with a 4.3 GPA. Plus, the advice he gets from his family is to work hard and stay humble.
