Towson Transfer Nick Timberlake on His Way to Lawrence
Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks have secured an enormous transfer Wednesday afternoon. Towson Tigers guard Nick Timberlake committed to the crimson and blue, he announced on his Twitter account.
This is no small thing, literally. Timberlake, who stands in at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, is an All-Colonial Athletic Association First Team and CAA All-Tournament Team recipient, fresh off a career year.
That featured 17.7 points per game on 45.5% shooting from the field, including 41.6% from 3-point range. He also brought down 3.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists per contest while starting all 33 games for the Tigers.
Over the past two seasons alone, Timberlake has fired up 413 attempts from beyond the arc and connected on 170 of them for 41.2%. That’s better than Gradey Dick’s 40.3% on 206 3-point tries during the 2022-23 season.
“He’s a strong, physical, confident and tough bucket-getter that will find himself starting at the power five level next year. He can create off the dribble, make shots from deep at a high rate and finish above the rim,” wrote 247Sports’ Travis Branham, per KU247’s Michael Swain.
Over the course of his career, Timberlake has played in 122 games, 90 of those starts for the northern Baltimore university. He’ll have one year of eligibility when he arrives in Lawrence for the upcoming season.
