Karl Towns will enter Lexington with an advantage over his other three classmates, since he has played under Calipari for the Dominican Republic national team over the last two summers.
The center from St. Joseph High School in Metuchen, NJ brings with him plenty of size, which is an attribute that most players on the Wildcats roster already possess.
Despite the depth in the size department this season, Kentucky may lose some of it depending on who declares for the NBA draft.
Dakari Johnson and Marcus Lee are the two paint players with the highest chance of coming back next season, but Towns will head into the 2014-15 season with an edge over the two because of his versatility.
Towns has the ability to sneak out past the three-point line and drain a few shots, which is a quality that could cause plenty of trouble to Kentucky's opponents next season.
The one knock on the big man is his prowess on the glass, which may be lacking a bit because of his all-around play on the offensive end.
On Wednesday night, Towns will be one of two seven-footers on the East roster. The other is Myles Turner, who has yet to commit to a school, but he could end up in Lexington if the right situation presents itself.
With that in mind, if Towns and Turner hit the court at the same time, it could be a preview of what a stacked frontcourt could look like for Kentucky next season.
