No. 2 hoops recruit Turner will attend Texas
ESPN 106+ SHARES
Myles Turner, the No. 2 player in the ESPN 100, chose to attend in-state Texas on Wednesday over the likes of Kansas, Oklahoma State and Duke.
Turner's favorite player growing up was former Longhorns star Kevin Durant, and now he has chance to have a Durant-like impact at Texas.
During his junior season, he was unranked until a monster spring vaulted him toward the top of the rankings.
With Turner's commitment, expectations will be high for a Texas squad that returns its entire roster from a team that won an NCAA tournament game this past season.
In addition to Turner, the Longhorns have signed small forward Jordan Barnett, No. 86 in the ESPN 100, who will bring versatility to the lineup.
