Myles Turner trims list to 8 schools
By Reggie Rankin
Five-star center Myles Turner (Bedford, Texas/Trinity) has confirmed that he has trimmed his list to eight schools. In no particular order, the finalists for high school basketball’s hottest prospect are Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Arizona, Ohio State, Oklahoma State and Texas.
Turner has an official visit set up with Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks on Oct 4.
Turner also has a home visit set with Texas on Sept. 9 and plans to go unofficially to Austin as well.
"I have done my research and after studying demographics, coaching staffs, head coaches' records and history, these are the schools I have settled on at this point in the process," Turner said.
Turner will continue to set up visits and then trim his list again to three to five schools in the next month.
Turner has gone from unranked to No. 10 in the ESPN 100 after a tremendous spring and summer where he has established himself as one of the nation’s elite high school players. Turner brings great size, motor, skill and elite shot-blocking to the court, where his production has been consistent and extremely impressive.
