Myles Turner will visit Ohio State Oct. 18 on an official visit, his father told SNY.tv Saturday.
The 6-foot-11 Turner had said he was considering several options for that weekend, including Kentucky, Duke and Oklahoma State as well.
“Myles had been talking with Ohio State and they were the first to invite on that date,” David Turner said.
Beyond that weekend, Turner told SNY.tv he “definitely” plans to visit Kansas at some point after skipping “Late Night in the Phog” for the USA Basketball camp last weekend.
A projected top-2 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, Turner has cut his list to eight schools — Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Arizona, Ohio State, Texas and Oklahoma State.
He plans to sign in the spring.
