Karl-Anthony Towns and Willie Cauley-Stein are now on the workout circuit hoping to impress NBA teams ahead of this month's draft.
Both will hear their names called inside the top 10, and Towns has a great shot of going No. 1 to Minnesota. Neither he nor Willie did anything to hurt their stock in a Monday workout in front of several NBA scouts and analysts, including ESPN's Chad Ford ans DraftExpress' Jonathan Givony:
Willie Cauley-Stein can shoot the ball a bit. Making some 3s here in a workout setting at a fairly nice clip. Has nice, smooth mechanics.— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) June 1, 2015
Towns really stroking it from NBA 3. During one sequence shot 11-for-13 from beyond the arc ...— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 1, 2015

Watching Karl Towns work out in a setting like this is an absolute joke. Doing some absolutely unreal things. Unbelievable how skilled he is— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) June 1, 2015
Willie Cauley-Stein stroking the mid-range today. Just hit 8 or 9 straight 18-footers. Form looks solid. He's in very good shape physically.— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) June 1, 2015
Workout over. Towns one of the most freakishly talented bigs I've ever seen. Not sure what his weakness is in this setting.— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 1, 2015
4-star OL Landon Young, committed to UK for almost 2 years, is now giving serious thought to Ohio State. He and his family plan to visit again this year.
Everyone loves Chipotle. Why not rank college football teams based on Chipotle proximity to FBS campuses? SBNation did just that, and UK come in at No. 3 in the country.
