You probably don’t, but you should still take a couple of minutes to watch this new video from USA Today Sports. Towns is making a strong impact in his community, seen here in his visit to Reed Academy, a private non-profit school for children with autism.

The teachers at Reed plan to change the dress code to allow students to wear Kentucky t-shirts next season.

    Thank you Karl Towns for choosing the University o Kentucky as your school. I am so excited to watch you play next year. The Wildcats are proud of you…not only because you are a great basketball player, but because you are a great person. You are the type of young man, as a parent, you want to see your child become. GO CATS.

      Your kid must suck pretty hard. Either that or your parenting.

    More Karl Towns (and less Ron Jeremy) KSR. Come on, grow up Matt and Drew. You’re not in middle school any more.

    Can’t wait to see Towns and Poythress get wide open threes with the experienced studs Johnson and Cauley-Stein down low. This team is so loaded. Cals first team showed us that nothing is guaranteed but it is going to take a great team playing their best to give the Cats any competition.

      I would rather not see threes from Poythress. Wide open or otherwise.

    That was great. That young man is very special even if he never scores a basket.

    Wonderful addition to the BBN. Can’t wait to see what he does on and off the court at UK.
