Turner, Kennard, Jeter Highlight Big Recruiting Weekend at Duke
Myles Turner, Luke Kennard and Chase Jeter are among the big names who will visit Duke this weekend for the North Carolina game on Saturday.

His father, David Turner, told SNY.tv his son still plans to visit Texas and may also visit Kentucky.
Kennard, a 6-5 2015 shooting guard who averaged 40 points per game this season, will also attend, his father confirmed to SNY.tv.
He is also considering Kentucky, Ohio State, Louisville, Michigan, Florida and North Carolina.
Jeter, a 6-10 2015 center, will visit Duke following an unofficial visit to Arizona this past weekend.
“Of course, Duke loves Chase,” Clay Williams of Dream Vision told SNY.tv. “Duke really likes Chase Jeter.”
Arizona, Louisville, Kansas, UCLA and North Carolina are among those also involved.
