Each and every time Phenom Hoops gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Mekhi Turner
Committed to: Kennesaw State
What Was Said by Phenom:
'Turner has a lot of factors in his game that you have to like and that makes him a D1-type player. He checks off the boxes with his size, his athleticism, and is comfortable in bringing a presence to the court in a variety of ways. He was extremely active around the basket, whether it was finishing with authority at the rim, running the floor and attacking the paint, being a strong force on the glass, or also making a presence in protecting the rim defensively. But you have to also like his ability to work inside and out, showing his comfort level from the perimeter (which would more than likely be developed when he was younger, and he hit his growth spurt). With his wingspan and his overall feel for the game, he should be a target for many more schools, having plenty of eyes his way this summer.'
'Turner is a player that we recently learned about, and we said that he is one to really watch out for. Coming from Georgia and playing with Wood Elite recently, Turner checks a lot of boxes off that you have to like. He is 6'8, is athletic, is comfortable in bring a strong presence inside and out and impacting the game in a variety of other ways. Already holding two offers, he is one that should see his recruitment pick up more. When we watched him, he was authoritative at the rim, strong in running the floor, and playing with a motor constantly on both sides.'
'Turner and the whole Wood Elite program really came to the Phenom Hoops platform and showcased the talent they had, and Turner was one that played extremely well. Turner is a 6'8 prospect that checks the boxes of athleticism, being active, physical, and has the ability to operate inside and out. When you watch his game, you can see why schools are looking more his way and why he holds a few D1 offers already.'
