Karl-Anthony Towns proud to have done "the right thing" at UK

Karl-Anthony Towns is the second former Kentucky Wildcat to comment on the bombshell that was dropped on college basketball this week, and how Kentucky is one of the schools that does it the right way, when we’re learning others do not.

Towns told ESPN:

“It’s something that people kind of felt, but we didn’t know how big it truly was. I would be sitting here lying to you if I said it was surprising and shocking. I don’t think it’s surprising or shocking. The number of people involved is shocking. That’s the biggest thing. I’m very, very fortunate to have had a very good time in college and be with a great school and doing the right thing.”

Towns’ response to the scandal came shortly after John Wall said, “If you are only going to school for one year, there’s no point in doing all the extra stuff.”

      Me too. There is nothing I want more than for us to be the only big name school to come out of this unscathed. But we have to admit it is hard to believe we will, since we have had the best recruiting classes year after year. Cal can’t control all his assistants and players, they probably had every opportunity to grab some money and that’s scary.

      Smat, almost all of Cals assistants have been with him for a long time. I would find it very hard to believe he doesn’t know their every move. But I guess we are gonna find out.
