A 2014 Kentucky signee and the number 11 ranked player in his class, Karl Towns Jr. is looking to branch out in sports. Word from Adam Zagoria is that Towns Jr. is looking to pitch for his St. Joe's High School baseball team this season. Could you imagine seeing a high school pitcher standing on the mound at nearly 7'2?
It wouldn't be completely far fetched considering the big man used to pitch when he was in the eight grade. His father, Karl Towns Sr. told Zagoria "just the other day he was swinging and hitting balls, he misses baseball. He says that if everything goes right, he wants to at least be a part of the baseball team his senior year."
If you have followed Karl Towns Jr. at all, you would know that not only is he one of the best in the class of 2014, but that he is just a pure athlete. He not only excels at basketball, but apparently he is quite the golfer as well and it looks as if he is going to be adding a fast ball to his forte'.
You can read the entire story here, but you should also hang around Zagsblog as it is an excellent place for recruiting news.
