I know it is weird to write posts about drafts that are two years away, but with basketball it kind of works that way. You can usually tell early if a kid is going to be a player.
Karl Towns Jr is getting a lot of press right now, and is the #1 play in the Junior/2014 recruiting class. He just dropped a QUADRUPLE DOUBLE the other day. Could he be the #1 pick in the 2015 draft?
Towns, the highly versatile junior, earned the top spot right away. How versatile he is, you ask? The quadruple-double kind. The kid finished with 16 points, 17 rebounds, 11 blocks and 11 assists in a game just a couple of weeks ago. He followed that game up with an easy triple-double (23 points, 17 rebounds and 11 blocks). Let’s keep in mind that there’s only been four quadruple-doubles in NBA history. Towns is only 17 years old and has already played against Team USA’s 2012 Gold-winning London Olympic squad. So yeah, we think he’s made his case.

By the way you already know Cal got him- he’s a Wildcat.
