Myles Turner is still mulling his college basketball decision, but that did not stop Kelly Oubre and Joel Embiid from putting the pressure on him over the last week. It remains to be seen if that will pay off or not, but you can bet that we will keep track of his commitment here at Rant Sports. I noticed the news concerning Oubre thanks to Jeff Borzello of CBS, and it should be interesting to see if Embiid’s recruiting has any positive impact.
Cliff Alexander said he, Kelly Oubre and Joel Embiid have all tried to talk Myles Turner into going to Kansas.

It probably does not hurt Turner’s opinion about his prospects that Embiid is about to be a top five pick in the draft, and at this point it would not surprise me to see the jump shooting center head to Lawrence. I’m sure that head coach Bill Self is probably not complaining about his recruits as of late, and if he can bring another championship to Kansas then I would not be surprised to see him make the jump to the pros.
Another Texas native who impressed at the Jordan Brand Classic was Emannuel Mudiay, and I just wanted to draw a little bit of attention to him with the tweet below.

That is all for Prep today, but also keep an eye out for a slideshow later tonight. Look for Turner to make his decision by April 30th, which will make for quite a nice end of month surprise.
