Myles Turner aiming to visit SMU next Wednesday

By Jon Rothstein | CBS Sports

Myles Turner, the top remaining uncommitted prospect in the Class of 2014 is aiming to unofficially visit SMU next Wednesday (2/19) when the Mustangs host Houston, his father confirmed.

247 Sports previously reported an unofficial visit for Turner scheduled for Wednesday.

"We're hoping to go," Myles' father David said Friday morning. "SMU is in the conversation. There's no front-runners right now."

The 6-11 Turner has already taken official visits to Oklahoma State and Ohio State and can officially visit three other programs before making a decision.

David Turner said there's no update as to which other schools his son will visit.

"We have to sort that out," David Turner said. "We have too many schools still on the list."

Kansas has been linked as a potential destination for Turner but that decision may very well hinge on whether or not Joel Embiid leaves school for the NBA after this season.

If Embiid opts to return for his sophomore season, it's unlikely that Turner will wind up with the Jayhawks.

The fact that SMU is involved with a player of this caliber underscores how much Larry Brown has transformed the Mustangs' program over the last two years. The Mustangs are in the AP Top 25 this week for the first time since 1984-85.

SMU has already received a commitment from the top point guard in the Class of 2014 in Emmanuel Mudiay, and will also return the majority of this season's core that is currently 19-5 overall and in third place in the American Athletic Conference.

If Brown were to somehow land both Mudiay and Turner, SMU would instantly become a Top 10 preseason team next year and a legitimate contender to play deep into the NCAA Tournament.
