Even though he’s now enrolled at Kentucky, freshman Karl Towns was honored for his high school accolades with the Gatorade High School Male Athlete of the Year award.
As a senior at St. Joseph’s in New Jersey, the 7-footer averaged nearly 21 points, 14 rebounds and 6 blocks, all while maintaining a high GPA.
