DALLAS - Blue-chip recruit Myles Turner is closing in on a decision to sign with the SMU basketball program, a source close to the process tells FOX Sports Southwest.
Turner, a 6-11 center from Euless Trinity High School, has also been linked to Duke, Ohio State, Kansas and Oklahoma State. Considered a "one-and-done" candidate by scouts (meaning Turner is good enough to play college basketball for one season before declaring for the NBA), a Turner pairing with fellow DFW product Emmanuel Mudiay, a Prime Prep product rated the top point guard in the country, would continue coach Larry Brown's notable turnaround of a Mustangs program that before this year hadn't been ranked in the Top 25 since the 1984-85 season.
