The top uncommitted player left in college basketball’s 2014 recruiting class is Myles Turner. He probably knows what he is going to do at this point, but he is still keeping his cards pretty close to his chest. For that, I do not blame him, because the media can twist your words in a lot of different ways. It is probably strange to admit this as a semi-media person, but it is a reality of the world we live in.
My money is still on the Kansas Jayhawks to land Turner, and it seems that the Texas Longhorns are probably out after all of the hubbub on twitter. For those of you who missed it, a University of Texas student actually advised Turner to not commit to the Longhorns, which may have been career suicide for that young man as a journalist at least in that state.

I feel bad for him, because if he had been writing for a more generic news outlet (as opposed to one in Texas), then no one would have even batted an eye at that article.
We will just have to wait to see where Turner decides to go, but we should brace ourselves for any potential outcome. Because you never know what can happen at the last minute in the land of college basketball recruiting.
