It's still early as Myles Turner (Bedford, Texas/Trinity) has only been to Ohio State for an official visit. Right now he is concentrating on his senior season and winning a state championship. He plans on taking an official visit to Oklahoma State, but whether it will be during or after his season is still undetermined. He has been to Austin, Texas, several times unofficially to check out the Longhorns.

When you look at all the schools involved -- Arizona, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Ohio State, Oklahoma State and Texas -- it’s obvious that this is going to be an absolute big-time recruiting battle for the nation’s No. 2 player. One of the biggest questions in his recruiting process is whether Turner wants to stay close to home. If so, that increases the chances for the Cowboys as well as the Longhorns. It's too early to give a percentage guess, but knowing he wants to and plans to visit Oklahoma State is very encouraging if you’re a Cowboys fan.
