Many have believed that current 2015 recruit Karl Towns is a lock for Kentucky since he played with the Dominican team this past Summer with John Calipari as his coach.
Adam Zagoria spoke recently with Karl Towns’ mother, Jackie, and it sounds like Duke is right there as well.
Towns has a strong relationship with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewksi, against whom he played when he was on the Dominican Republic National Team this summer and Coach K coached Team USA.
“Well, there’s so much to like about Duke and it’s of course, Coach K and the curriculum,” Jackie Towns, Karl’s mother, told SNY.tv by phone Tuesday.
“Like with every coach, he gets along with every coach and they have a great relationship.”
Asked how he might fit in at Duke should he opt to go there, Towns told SNY.tv recently, “I think I would fit in well. With Coach K having Ryan Kelly this year shows he can work with big men at any position and make the most of their talent.
“Also, since he coached the USA Team, his work with Kevin Love could help me with my game.”
Whichever school Karl Towns picks they are getting a great talent and a very smart, well rounded kid.
Let’s just hope he is moving to Lexington.
