    Big 12 contenders for #2 overall recruit are Texas, Kansas, and Ok State.

    Arizona, Duke, and Ohio State in the mix as well

    Texas is said to be the favorite

    Texas would be pretty scary next year with him. He, Ridley, Holes and Ibeh is a pretty good frontline, with Felix, Taylor, Croaker at guard...that's a pretty solid team.

    I was hoping SMU. Are they not in the running anymore?

    I'm afraid he'll go to Texas. But I hope it is either Ohio State, Arizona, or Duke.

    Next year, Iowa State and Texas have a real shot at knocking Kansas off the Big 12 Title throne. Right now, I think if Texas lands Turner, they have the talent that can definitely win it all, and they seem to always give us fits no matter how talented they are.

    If Kansas doesn't get him, they won't be that crazy freaky team they seem to always have. They'll have Cliff Alexander, but I'd put any of our big guys next year up against him any day.

    Multiple MBB reporters have tweeted it is down to Kansas and Texas. ISU will be faceing him at least twice next year. My guess is as a Longhorn.

    Source close to the Myles Turner recruitment says: "It's Texas or Kansas."

    I think it's KU... Pretty easy to sell the big man success KU has had and playing time available. Hope he goes to SMU.

    Twocoach's face as he reads this would be priceless. Ummm....Sir, your KU vein protruding out of your head. Please calm down, and continue beating yourSelf.

    If it comes down to Texas or Kansas I would rather it be Texas.

    it was laughter, not anger, that occurred when I read that. Cliff Alexander is going to be pretty good next year. Any big from ISU? I'd take that action all day.

    My gut says Texas. If he is only going to stick around for a year, there really isn't that much difference. Texas will be a contender; Kansas will be a contender. I'd take Self and staff over Barnes and staff but in a one year gig that may not make that much of a difference to him. If he was looking at a longer stay then the training staff at KU would probably be better equipped to get him ready for the NBA in my opinion. Andrea Hudy is the best in the business. Playing close to home has come up repeatedly in his comments so anything not Texas would surprise me at this point. We'll know at 3pm.

    Then you'd take ONE ISU big guy against Alexander, not ANY.

    You had to say his name didn't you?


    He's like Beetleguise. Apparently you only have to say it once though.

    Lol. I did think it was odd that 9 minutes after I mentioned him he's here.

    I think Jameel McKay will hold his own against your bigs as well... And we all found out what Dustin Hogue is capable of against an Embiid-less KU front line in the XII tourney last year too.
