Many folks out there probably think that Myles Turner should commit to a school that will help him get to the NBA as quickly as possible. I understand that position.
However, I also believe that these young players should also have an eye out for what happens after their basketball careers are over. This might seem like an obvious thing to write, but it still bears mentioning.
Turner seems to be leaning towards the Kansas Jayhawks based on all of the whispers that I am hearing, but it still would not be a surprise to see him land with the Texas Longhorns. He seems like a Big 12 player through and through, but we will have to wait until April 30th to find out exactly what is going to happen.
It has been quite a long wait, but we are all about to find out what school Turner will be knocking down three pointers for next season. My prediction? Rick Barnes is going to have a frowny face on Wednesday, and it will not be the last time that the Longhorns head coach misses out on an elite recruit. We have probably all heard by now that one of Turner’s idols is Kevin Durant, and it will be interesting to see if he ends up following the DMV native’s lead to the Longhorn state. They do say that everything is a little bit bigger in Texas.
