  • Turner Planning Kentucky Visit

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    No date has been set, but Myles Turner is planning a visit to Kentucky.

    “Yes, Kentucky is in the plans,” David Turner, Myles’ father, told SNY.tv Friday by text.

    As reported here, Kentucky’s John Calipari and Orlando Antigua sat courtside Thursday night as the 6-foot-11 Turner went for 29 points, 15 rebounds and 9 blocks as Trinity (TX) beat Homeschool Christian (TX), 57-53, on ESPNU.

    Turner, who is projected as the No. 2 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by DraftExpress.com, begins an official visit to Oklahoma State today (Friday) and has already taken an official to Ohio State.

    That leaves him with three remaining officials and it appears Kentucky will get one.

    He is also considering Kansas, Duke, Arizona, Texas and possibly Texas A&M.

    Duke, Texas and Texas A&M also watched him Thursday.

    Kentucky has four players signed for 2014 in Tyler Ulis, Devin Booker, Trey Lyles and Karl Towns Jr., but Calipari said recently that he planned to sign two more in the spring.

    Turner, shooting guard Rashad Vaughn and forward Jonah Bolden are all still on the board. Vaughn and Bolden play together at Findlay Prep.

    Kentucky is involved with both of those players as well, with Vaughn telling SNY.tv that he has added Kentucky back on his list.
