Wake Showing Big Interest in Turner

At this point in the recruiting season, big-time players are hard to find. But many schools have found 6'5 sweet shooting guard Chris Turner. Turner, a native of Durham, North Carolina, had a big season at Humble Christian Academy in Austin, Texas.

His play has translated into some big time offers. DeaconSports.com has caught up with Turner to get a update on his season and recruitment.

Humble Christian Academy is coming off a outstanding season and so is their 6'5 shooting guard Chris Turner. Turner helped lead the Cougars to a 27-10 record, along the way averaging 19 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals per game. The one time Oregon State commit has seen his recruitment skyrocket in the past few months.

"Since I de-committed from Oregon State I have heard from Kentucky, Wake Forest, Baylor, USC, and East Carolina," Turner said. "All of those teams have offered except for Wake and Kentucky." When asked about visits Turner responded that he was slated to visit Wake Forest recently.

"I was actually supposed to visit Wake last week but my schedule did not work out so I will be headed up there in a few weeks," he said. While the Demon Deacons have yet to offer Turner, he believes they may be close to doing so. "Wake has been on me pretty hard recently. I hope when I visit there in a few weeks I will get an offer. It is my dream to play in the ACC and play back home in North Carolina. I have been away from home for a while and miss it a little bit."

When asked if Wake would be the team to beat if they offered, Turner responded that the Deacons would be hard to beat. "They would definitely be at the top. They are back home and in the ACC and that is big."

Chris Turner will be a very big asset where ever he ends up. With his size and shooting ability as well as his commitment to defense, look for big things from Chris Turner at the next level.
