On Monday night Towns announced his commitment to Harvard, and for an elite student like Towns it was the ideal fit. “Academically it is the number one school in the world, so that was big,” said Towns. “It is just a different opportunity, and an opportunity like no other.” He continued, “I can compete against the best and play with the best while also getting the best education, so it was just the right fit for me.” Along with academics, basketball also played a key role in the decision, notably the recent success of the Crimson under Tommy Amaker. “Basketball wise I think it is underrated,” explained Towns. “With Tommy Amaker being the head coach and being to all the NCAA Tournaments that they have been to, everything is just so perfect to me about the situation.” Towns went on to stay, “I just fell in love with Harvard. Me and the coaching staff are really close and I trust what they are saying. I think it is a great opportunity to move forward in basketball and school.” This is the second big commitment for Harvard in their 2016 class. Towns joins Chris Lewis in what is shaping up to be a tremendous haul for the Crimson.
