Turner has the ability and the athleticism to play both guard spots, and is looking to play either or both at the next level.
Standing at 6’6, weighing in at 170 pounds, Turner has the size to play at the next level, and he hopes that his senior year will reel in some offers.
As far as the season is going, things seem to be going in the favor of Turner, and he would like to continue to build upon that.
“The season is going well,” Turner said. “We are becoming more of a team by working hard, playing together and winning games. A lot has changed from last year with Covid, but being able to be back this year made me want it more as a player and leader.
“As a team I feel we did really well post live period, and I can’t wait to see the big things ahead of us. For myself, I feel like I am able to standout on both sides of the ball. I am able to score from all three levels, I am a great playmaker, and I am a tough on-ball defender.”
Turner is currently averaging 14 points per game, 8 assists and 6 rebounds, while also becoming the MVP.
For Turner, the game of basketball is not just a game, but rather a place where he can go and feel free from everything else in life.
“I play the game of basketball because when I’m playing it, my mind goes away from everything else,” Turner said. When I play basketball, I feel good, when I pick up a ball and step on the court I feel at home, ready to go to work and dominate any way I can.
“When I step on the court, it is the one place on Earth where I am in my element. I do not worry about school, family, or problems. I think about what is in front of me, and how I can get the basketball in the hoop or to my teammates.
Through it all, Turner has a reason for what drives him to continue to play the game of basketball, even when things may not go his way.
“What drives me, is that playing basketball could be my career,” Turner said. “Just that and also knowing that my mom wouldn’t have to work another day in life when I make it and that I could take care of those who took care of me is huge for me as well.
“My mom is a former basketball player, so she always pushed my big brother to play and get better at it. We have natural born talent, but I play to perfect my craft daily. I was born to play basketball , I was born to dominate on and off the court.
Confidence is one thing that every great player must possess, and Turner is no different when it comes to that.
“I feel like I am destined for greatness, and I am determined to make it,” Turner said. When I do good things on the court, it makes me continue to want to go harder and make stuff happen. Not just for me but also for my teammates.
“I am athletic, but I am also a student of the game. I love to learn new techniques and drills to get me to where I need to be. I have had a passion for this game since I was three years old, and you can see that when I play.”
While Turner is still working hard for that first offer, it should not be long before he gets one, with his abilities paired with his 3.0 GPA in the classroom, which more than qualifies him for next level ball!
