Myles Turner Says “We Want To Show What USA Basketball Is All About”

Myles Turner was selected to the Nike Hoop Summit that happened tonight, and it was quite a high flying affair. Keep an eye on Rant Sports Prep tomorrow for a recap on the game’s events, and I will be re-watching that for good measure on my DVR tomorrow.

Also, be sure to check out the excellent interview that Draft Express did with Turner, and I was most interested when he said that he wants to show the international squad what “USA Basketball is all about”. That is what I am talking about.

Turner has yet to make a recruiting decision, but I believe it will come down to the Kansas Jayhawks and one of their other Big 12 rivals. He will make the decision shortly after the Jordan Brand Classic, and I would bet that this all comes to a head by April 30th. My prediction is that Jayhawks head coach Bill Self is going to be a happy man by the end of the month, because he is going to basically have a seven foot tall version of Kevin Durant at his disposal. Turner’s ability to shoot the three pointer makes him virtually impossible to guard when his shot is falling, and I cannot wait to see him light up the Big 12 next season.

All for Prep today, but be sure to check out my slideshow about Jabari Parker later tonight.
