Karl Towns Jr., the nation's top-ranked player for the recruiting class of 2015, will announce his college choice on Dec. 4.

“I know my family was feeling a lot of pressure, and I want to be able to have fun playing basketball in high school (this season) and not have to worry about anything off the basketball court,” Towns said. “I never like leading people on. I just want to get it over with.”

Towns is expected to choose between Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina and Florida.

“It’s a very strenuous process—it’s relentless,” Towns said. “It’s also fun, but it doesn’t leave your mind. It hits you every day over the head.”
