great piece on my favorite young player.

I’m from Dallas so I’ve gotten to follow his career for awhile. He was a late bloomer who didn’t really come up through the AAU circles that most kids from around here do, which is one reason why he ended up at Texas in the first place. (Rick Barnes had a terrible reputation in this part of the world and Turner was the first big recruit he got from Dallas since CJ Miles and LaMarcus Aldridge). I knew the he was a very well grounded kid with the talent and work ethic to succeed, so I was never really worried about his poor season in college.

Like what you read? Give Jonathan Tjarks a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
