"He's played really well for us," said Turnage. "He averaged 23 and 12 with six blocks a game. He fits in really nice with us. What I like the most about him is he's a hard worker and wants to be great.
"He has a bright future ahead of him."
Govan had a breakout performance a couple of weeks ago at the opening EYBL session. The 6-foot-10, 255-pounder averaged 13.5 points and 7.2 rebounds for New York Lightning, impressing college coaches with his overall play.
"He's a throwback," said Turnage. "He's a heck of a passer. Jessie is a big that wants to be a big. He understands his game and doesn't stray away from him.
"Overall, he has nice arsenal... a left-handed hook and a jump hook."
Govan already held offers from Seton Hall, Cincinnati, Louisville, Arizona, Miami, Virginia, Georgetown, and UConn among others before adding offers from NC State and Syracuse following the EYBL session.
NC State assistant Rob Moxley is heading up his recruitment.
"I've known for a while that NC State was interested," said Turnage. "Coach Moxley likes him a lot. He came up a while back and watched him. He told me at the time that the boss just needed to get out and watch him and that happened [in Sacramento]. That's when the offer came.
"He is definitely interested in them. It's now about learning more about the program and the school."
Govan has already taken unofficial visits to Georgetown, UConn, and Seton Hall, and he has a trip set up for Miami.
As of now, it sounds like there are no leaders and a decision could come later this summer.
"He's wide open right now," said Turnage. "He's looking for a great education and a place where he can make a major impact right away.
"I think his decision is going to be after the July period. He's going to get out and visit more schools so he can find out where he's the most comfortable."
