Endless Motor 4 star Chandler Turner is turning heads with his play early in the High School season. Hit the jump for insight on the jumbo guard’s game and an early look at his recruitment.
The 6’6 junior has been tremendous in the early season, averaging 20 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists per game for Detroit Renaissance HS so far.
“I feel like I am off to a good start, but I still have certain things to work on in my game that I feel would make us a better team.”
Chandler is an extremely skilled and versatile guard/wing that scores on all three levels. Turner consistently breaks defenders down off the dribble before finishing at the rim or knocking down perimeter shots. As a more traditional off-ball wing, he has range out to 25 feet and is an excellent offensive rebounder that utilizes his size well.
“The biggest strengths in my game to me are my versatility. Being able to play different positions, my rebounding ability and to score at any position.”
Still in the very early stages of his recruitment, Chandler holds a handful of Division I offers, but appears to be on the cusp of blowing up.
“Kent State, NIU, Cleveland State, and UW Milwaukee have all offered,” Turner told Endless Motor. While those four programs have extended official offers, a few notable B10 programs are keeping tabs as his stock continues to rise.
“Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, VCU, Temple, Eastern Michigan, Duquesne, Ohio, Bowling Green, Loyola University Chicago, Detroit, Miami of Ohio, Toledo, and IUPUI are all showing interest.”
While a commitment is far down the road, development and academics are key factors in the decision making process.
“For me and my family we are looking for a school to put me in a position to be successful on and off the court, while my coaches are pushing me to the best of my ability. Also a school where I can get a great education.”
As we get into the heart of the season, Turner is looking to make improvements on the defensive side of the ball and making his off-ball game more lethal than it already is.
“I plan to better my game all around, but I work more on defense, coming off screens and my midrange game.”
Although the 2019 Endless Motor Top 200 has not been released, Chandler appears to be a strong candidate to enter that group. His ability to create shots and score from multiple spots on the court either off the dribble or the catch, makes him one of the most potent offensive prospects in the country.
