Austin, TX, United States (4E Sports) – Myles Turner of Euless Trinity chose to attend Texas over the likes of Kansas, Oklahoma State and Duke on Wednesday.
The 7-foot Turner, who is from Bedford in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, is an elite shot-blocker with a 3-point shooting ability.
He is the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2014 basketball class and the highest-rated Texas recruit since Avery Bradley, who was No. 1 in 2009.
Turner’s favorite player growing up was former Longhorns star Kevin Durant, and now he has the chance to have a Durant-like impact at Texas.
