Double Pump: 2018 SF/WR Cole Turner getting two-sport interest

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Cole Turner is a 2018 prospect receiving interest in both basketball and football. Who is recruiting the two-sport athlete?

One of the more intriguing young prospects at the Double Pump Summer Tip-Off was Cole Turner, a 2018 prospect from Clackamas (Ore.).

The 6-foot-7, 195-pound small forward, who plays AAU for Elite 24, has good size and length for the position, very good vision, showed the ability to hit jumpers and was aggressive attacking the basket in transition.

"I run the floor well, I pass the ball and I can finish at the rim," Turner said. "I'm working on a more consistent shot and having a tight handle."

Turner has divided his time between both basketball and football to date, with recruiting attention coming in each sport.

"In football I'm hearing from Portland State, Oregon and Washington State and in basketball I'm hearing from Pepperdine and Washington State," he said.

While Turner feels he's slightly further ahead in football than basketball right now, he's unsure which sport he'll play in college.

"I love them both," Turner said. "I haven't decided yet. I'm just going to keep playing and when I get there, I get there."
