Congrats to 2014 UK commit Karl Towns, who was named to the NBA Players Association Top 100 camp roster, which also features several 2014 players the Cats are still pursuing, including Rashad Vaughn, Devin Booker, Josh Perkins, Jalen Lindsey, Craig Victor and Skal Labissiere. The event starts on Thursday in Charlottesville, Virginia and runs through Sunday.
SLAM Magazine caught up with Towns recently and asked him if he’s ready to take the responsibility and spotlight that all of Calipari’s freshmen are expected to embrace. I think you’ll like his answer:
“I’m a big-time demander. I demand you to do something. I think I have something like a potent attitude where I really need my teammates to do what I want them to do. If they don’t do it, then I’m gonna be really upset and I’m gonna make you do it. St. Joe’s people know how I am. The team knows how I am. I’m very demanding and I expect the most of everyone. If you don’t give me the most, then I want you to sit down and not play.”
What will he say to his fellow 2014 recruits this weekend about coming to Kentucky?
“I just want players to come to Kentucky if they want to win. I want to win a Championship there. If you wanted to get recruited to Kentucky, know that I’m going to be there and I want to win.”
How can you not love this kid?
