We already know the 2013 class will be epic, but what about 2015? Karl Towns, the 2015 phenom, will announce his college decision on December 4th, according to a statement from his athletic director to the Herald-Leader. The news comes as no surprise to CBSSports’ Jeff Borzello, who alluded to it during his early signing day live blog earlier today:
11:19 a.m.: It’s not signing day for class of 2015 prospects, but @gadyca has a question about Karl Towns: Rumor has it that Karl Towns will commit on Dec. 4th. Where do you think he’s leaning, and why so early?
We’re hearing the same thing regarding Towns, and yes, it’s very early. Towns, though, has been recruited at a high level for a couple of years now, and he could be tiring of the process. With that said, would we be surprised if he postponed his decision? Not at all. Kentucky is the leader right now, as Towns has a great relationship with John Calipari from the Dominican Republic national team. Florida and Duke are chasing.
Come on down, Karl.
