The 2015 NBA draft lottery will feature some of the nation's premier freshmen big men, and Texas' 6-foot-11 center Myles Turner no doubt belongs in that group. Though he was less hyped in high school compared to fellow first-year college big men Jahlil Okafor (ESPN's No. 1-rated player) and Karl-Anthony Towns (No. 9) due to a broken ankle, Turner earned the No. 2 overall ranking and signed with Texas over Kansas.
Similar to Towns at Kentucky, Turner is sharing minutes on a crowded and talented front line. But after watching a lot of games both in person and on film, it's clear to me that he has the most long-term potential of the Longhorns' post players.
