Texas Freshman Myles Turner Declares For NBA Draft (VIDEO)

by March 30, 2015

Texas freshman big man Myles Turner is headed to the NBA, making the announcement today via his own YouTube video, which you can watch above.

Turner, who ranks No. 7 in our latest NBA Draft Index update, was at one point the second-best prospect in the Class of 2014. Myles kept our Jordan Brand Classic diary last year, so you already know we’ll be rooting for the 6-11, 240-pound Houston native at the next level.

In his one season at Texas, Turner averaged 10.1 points and 6.5 rebounds for a Longhorns team that lost a first-round matchup with Butler in the NCAA Tournament.
