The 6-foot-11 Turner, who is ranked second among the nation's top high school seniors by various recruiting services, has officially added SMU to his list of finalists along with Texas, Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Kansas, Kentucky, Duke and Arizona.
This can happen.
When I interviewed Turner, and his father David Turner, earlier this year his father mentioned one specific element they are looking for in his son's next stop.
"He wants to play with a point guard," David Turner said.
That would mean Myles wants to play with a really good point guard, which SMU should have.
SMU has signed 6-foot-5 point guard Emmanuel Mudiay of Prime Prep Academy; he is the highest-ranked recruit SMU has ever signed.
Despite Turner originally saying SMU was not on his official list, SMU head coach Larry Brown kept showing up to practices and games in an effort to change Turner's mind.
There may not be a better coach of point guards in basketball, college or pro, and the chance to play with Muddiay could sway Turner to be a Pony. If Turner does attend SMU, a team that already looked to be the best in the state could easily be a preseason top-15 team next season.
Hell, stranger things have happened. Like, for instance, SMU is coached by Larry Brown. Or that SMU basketball is good.
