Josiah Turner

Name: Josiah Turner

Overall Rank: #13

Position (Rank): Point Guard (#3)

College: Arizona

High School: Quality Education (North Carolina)

Height: 6’3

Weight: 185

Evaluation: Turner is one of the most physically gifted point guards in the class and has a great combination of scoring ability and passing. He has great ball-handling skills and gets to the bucket at ease. He is also a very exciting player who is quick, fast and strong. Turner only needs to improve on his outside shooting but his mid-range game is good and he finishes well with his left hand when he is forced to by defenders. He simply has great moves to make scoring opportunities for him and his teammates that are hard to explain in words (just watch his highlight tape). He will be a big-time player at Arizona next year and will make a huge impact.

Awards: All-American Championship Participant, MVP of the Inaugural Converse Mo-Mentorship All-Star Classic, MVP of the iS8 Classic

Stats: Junior year– 27.9 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 3.5 apg and 2.8 steals
