Myles Turner has been silent about his Duke Blue Devils visit so far, but he was named to the Jordan Brand team. That definitely deserves congratulations, and much thanks to the tweet below for alerting me to Turner’s selection.

We will be keeping close tabs on Turner’s recruiting situation here at Rant Sports Prep, and my prediction is that he will ultimately end up rolling with Blue Devils. That would give them an absolutely loaded squad next season, which is timely after Jabari Parker’s performance on Saturday. I just cannot see Parker staying another season, because believe he is at least number two on every NBA GM’s list. Maybe he will just decided that he wants to stay in school for another year though; you never know with these players, because you sometimes forget that they are college students as well.
Basketball recruiting can be a fickle game, and we will not quite know what truly happened over this weekend until months from now.
Turner still is nowhere near a decision, but it will send shockwaves through college basketball once he does. All for Prep today, but will leave you as always with a bit of fortune cookie wisdom.
