In Adam Zagoria’s article yesterday where an anonymous source complained that coaching the Dominican team, he cited eighth-grader Karl Towns, Jr. as a potential reason for Calipari having an unfair advantage. Towns, Jr. is the son of a Dominican-American mother and will play for Orlando Antigua’s twin brother on the U17 Dominican team. According to Zagoria, he’s a baseball and basketball star and wants to play both in college. The 4.0 student has received interest from the Cats, Florida, Texas and Oklahoma.
And, oh yeah, he’s 6’10 and can do this as an eighth-grader (class of 2015).
