Kentucky signee Towns says skipping AAU circuit was right choice for him

In a youth basketball landscape dominated by the AAU scene, University of Kentucky signee Karl Towns Jr. is somewhat of an enigma. The 7-footer from New Jersey didn't spend his past few summers playing for a team backed by Nike or Adidas or Under Armour. He didn't appear at many of the invitation-only camps that bring in the best players from around the country. His high school team didn't play many games outside of the state.
