Karl Towns already impressive at the Nike Hoops Summit

BHw0s3YCEAAKrWD
Mmmm…popcorn.

The Nike Hoop Summit isn’t until Saturday, but Karl Towns is already turning heads in Portland, Oregon.

The 2014 UK commit is playing for the World Team, and during warm-ups today, hit 17 of 24 threes from behind the NBA three-point line. He also measured 7’0″ tall with a ridiculous 7’3.5″ inch wingspan.

Oh yeah, he’ll be playing alongside Andrew Wiggins all week, who is also his roommate. Can’t hurt.

    Seriously, with all of these UK guys playing with Wiggins, surely he’s going to say to himself “damn, all the good dudes go to UK!”

    The threes sound impressive but one time I saw Jared Carter hit like eight straight, so I don’t know what to believe anymore.

    “Playing call of duty”? Oh, the irony.

    Just wondering if anyone has seen ANY pictures of Wiggins, from McDonald’s to Jordan Brand to Hoop Summit, where he was hanging out with somebody other than a UK commit!!

    Looks like KSR is not getting many clicks today. Good thing I’m here.

    I did some research early today. I was on-site, in various locations, various educational facilities. I can tell you for certain, based on reputable sources: Wiggins had PB&J today for lunch. He had grapes and small house salad with Ranch (I know, I’m as surprised as you all, thought he’d be a Thousand Island guy).

    i want him badly….but as long as its ku or fsu i could care less…..unc has some other talent and with him maybe they would make a legit opponent…..but i could.care less about the other 2

    Look if we can’t get him after all the stars aligning with him playing with UK guys right and left, I will just concede it wasn’t meant to be. He seems like a good kid and I wish him the best regardless. We will be great next year either way but it sure would be nice.

    Now what did Andrew Harrison mean about his tweet early today. Something about “they gonna be mad at us today” (paraphrasing)

    I do have some bad news report. I have been hearing multiple rumors around the area that Drew Barker is down to two schools in Kentucky and South Carolina. At the moment, he is leaning toward South Carolina is what I have heard.

    18, not enough confidence on what you have heard to link us up or to give info on your source?

    I didn’t think so!

    20, I have a really good friend that knows Barker very well and he says that Stoops is working it, and said that Barker may go here because of Cam Fogle

    Last I heard, Cam Fogle only had a couple of preferred walk on offer:

    Cam Fogle Recruiting Update:
    Cam went to Lexington on Friday and tweeted that it was a great day. He says he will decide which preferred walk-on offer to take – UK or UC.

    24, I haven’t heard the final word yet. But, it will be one of those two. And Fogle has already accepted at UK

    This means that Wiggins is going to stay for two years. Everybody has said he doesn’t like the spot light.

    29.) You took the time to type that about a high school kid?

    It was reported a few minutes ago that Andrew Wiggins has been disqualified for life by the NCAA from competing in mens college basketball………..Aparently it was discovered that the kids name is actually Andrea and he has been masquerading as a male athlete his entire life. UCONN has already sent some assistant coaches to her house to try and pursuade her to join their 2013 women’s team………………..YOU PEOPLE HAVE WAY TOO MUCH FREE TIME……..let the kid breathe a little.
