«Mecca. So blessed,» he captioned a photo of himself in front of a Howard University sign.
Towns chose Harvard over Ohio State and Michigan to begin his college career. He played two full seasons with the Crimson before suffering a knee injury that sidelined him for the 2018-19 season and then the 2019-20 season.
He transferred to Ohio State for the 2020-21 season and played in 25 games, averaging 3.8 points and 2.2 rebounds per game. In 2021, he underwent back surgery and in 2022 he announced that he was stepping away from basketball before announcing that he would be moving out of school.

«I think I’ve restructured my relationship with basketball,» he told the Columbus Dispatch on Friday. «It’s a lot healthier now. I’m not saying I put my whole identity into basketball, but man, it was hard, because that’s the only career aspiration I’ve ever had. Everything else was kind of subsidiary to that. Now, I think I’ve freed from the need to play at whatever level.
«I’m very grateful to have another chance to play and I love the game and all that, but I would say my connection to it isn’t as bad as it used to be.»
