Myles Turner setting up visits
By Reggie Rankin
Five-star center Myles Turner (Bedford, TX/Trinity) is starting to set up his home and official visits with some of college basketball's blue bloods starting this week, his mother Mary Turner said on Monday.
Coach Rick Barnes of the home state Texas Longhorns and John Calipari of the Kentucky Wildcats are scheduled for Wednesday. Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski will occupy the Turner living room on Thursday.
Turner, the #10 overall player in the ESPN 100, will officially visit the Kansas Jayhawks on Oct. 4, the Ohio State Buckeyes on Oct. 19 and Texas on Oct. 26.
Turner is one of the hottest prospects in high school basketball. He has played at a very high level since the spring and been consistent throughout the summer. Turner's motor, work ethic, skill and elite shot-blocking ability has college coaches working overtime to earn a commitment from a player who also has an off the charts upside -- a high character.
