UK’s first 2014 commitment sat down with Sports Illustrated to discuss his recruitment to Kentucky, life as an emerging star in high school and who he modeled his game after growing up. Towns wanted to be the next Magic Johnson until his body grew too big to play the point. That’s when he turned to tape of Len Bias and Hakeem Olajuwon.
When asked if he has a taste of Big Blue Nation, he said right now he just has the appetizer and he can’t wait to get to Lexington.
Kid’s so well spoken.
