So I install towelroot, reboot, then install super user via google play? Correct? Any known issues so far?

towelroot installs superuser and it's an old one.so what I did was install Safestrap and flashed SuperSU through the stock slot and am up to date.

Works good for me. Used the SU update zip on here...

Download, open folder, open "common" file, click superuser.apk icon and install. This is good for those who don't want to install SafeStrap.

Towelroot Working
Yes I just did mine and it works. I'm having trouble with Super SU. Message comes up to disable KNOX. It's been trying to disable for 30 minutes. Not sure if there's a newer version of Super SU or maybe AT&T put a tougher version of KNOX in the update but seems to be stuck "disabling".

Update: I went back to home screen then a few minutes later started Super SU, got the prompt to disable KNOX and this time it worked.
