Center Karl Towns has committed to Kentucky and announced he plans to reclassify to the 2014 class and graduate from high a school a year earlier than planned.
Florida, Duke, Michigan State, North Carolina and North Carolina State were all in the mix for Towns. But Kentucky has long been considered the team to beat for Towns.
“Kentucky is such a great school,” Towns said. “I felt like Kentucky was just the right school at the end of the day.”
Towns should have an idea of what kind of coaching he’ll see from Calipari. Towns played for Calipari this past summer on the Dominican Republic’s National Olympic Team.
