Kentucky Lands Another No. 1 Recruit - Karl Towns Jr.

Coach Cal at it again.

Scoop: According to the Kentucky Kernel, John Calipari and Kentucky have landed the No. 1 basketball recruit in the 2015 class, Karl Towns Jr.

Significance: Kentucky seems to be on its way to another top overall recruiting class. 

Story: At a 10 a.m. press conference in Metuchen, New Jersey, Towns made his collegiate choice known in front of his fellow students. Towns stand at 6-foot-11, weighing 235 pounds - he's a beast. While Towns is the top recruit for the 2015 class, there are rumors that he may eventually reclassify to the 2014 class (his grades are stellar). This is a big get for the Cats, but we've all gotten used to hearing that by now.
