Big Blue Madness is getting closer and closer, but there is a question that lurks around most people’s minds if you’re a Kentucky Wildcat fan. Will Myles Turner attend Big Blue Madness? Unfortunately, no one knows and neither does Myles Turner himself. Myles is down to Ohio State, Oklahoma State, and Kentucky to visit on the weekend of October 18th.
“Obviously, he’s only going to be able to pick one to go to,” Villines said. “But he’s still trying to get it all set. I know Ohio State wanted him up there, and Oklahoma State wants him to come that weekend and then Kentucky coach John Calipari wanted him to come that weekend. So I’m not 100 percent sure what he’s going to do, but they are going to try to set something up”
From what has been said, people that are close to Myles personally don’t know what this young man’s decision is going to be either. Myles just recently received an offer from the Kentucky Wildcats this past Wednesday. His father, David, had much to say about John Calipari and what he brings to the table:
“The family and everybody was very impressed with Coach Calipari,” Trinity (TX) Euless coach Mark Villines told Ben Roberts of the Herald-Leader “I mean, it’s Kentucky basketball, but he really pitched it to Myles. He didn’t sugarcoat anything — was very honest. When he walked away, the initial vibe was they were very impressed.”
The Kentucky Wildcats have already added Karl Towns for next years expected top class, but an addition with 10th ranked Miles Turner on ESPN’s top 100 prospects for the 2014 Class would be huge. Turner is expected to be a stretch four type of player that can range away from the basket, just like Karl. Turner also has the ability to punch it down low with the athletic ability he brings to the basketball court. This fundamentally athletic center sure can run the floor and create many different scenarios when attacking offensively. Hopefully Myles can attend Big Blue Madness and experience something that he’s never seen before. The big stage will be set, and Myles has the chance to see it up close.
