A month ago Turner announced his list had been reduced down to a more manageable 25 schools - all of them being high majors. Now, as the summer begins to slip away, the seven footer has reduced his list to a final eight.
"Overall, my parents told me to do my research, the academics, the system and the school," Turner said recently. "They want me to make sure I am doing my homework and I have been."
Turner is ranked as the No. 5 player in the Class of 2014 overall and the second-best center, according to Scout.com.
