Obviously don’t want to compare skills and potential professional careers, but CJ wasn’t “ideal height” for a SG at a major and he worked out pretty well for Lehigh. Look forward to watching him for four years. Do you think Deuce is the most skilled and top recruit of Davis’ tenure?

He seems to handle the ball well at the high school level. He often has the ball and passes well. He looks for his teammates and plays some defense. I am looking forward to seeing him play for the bison.

I’ve seen Deuce play several times a year for the past 3 seasons, including the opener this year vs Phelps School.

He is a pure scorer. He can score from any level and can slash to the basket against bigs. He has no fear.

He is a 2 and not a point guard. But he can get his own shot and dish to others for open 3s. Defense is a work in progress. He’s athletic enough to be a good defender. Malvern Prep does not ask him to do much more than score.

Very fast and can dunk as he did for the first basket of this season. Exciting player but needs to round out his skill set and get stronger.

Deuce Turner commits to the Bison

Malvern Prep lost 93-83 today to a very strong Rutgers Prep team in a high-level Philly tournament. Deuce had 34 points - 23 in the second half.

Rutgers Prep features 6-8 Trey Patterson, one of the top juniors in America (20+ P6 conference offers already), fellow junior PG Noah Harris (20+ D1 offers already) and 6-6 Nico Galette, a Sacred Heart commit. Among the many coaches in attendance were Jay Wright and a Bison coach (likely Joe Meehan).

Deuce one of around 50 to receive honorable mention in the Philadelphia Inquirer’s all-decade boys basketball selections.

And one of only three on the team who is still in high school. For those who haven't seen it, note that this is not an all-star team just for schools in the various Philly-area leagues but rather an All-Southeastern PA team, which incorporates far more schools. It ranges at least as far west as Coatesville and at least as far north as Quakertown (Pennridge HS).

By ranging so far from Philly, a lot of strong players get added, e.g. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (Chester), Mo Bamba (Westtown), Cam Reddish (Westtown), Ryan Arcidiancono (Neshaminy), etc.

Deuce not playing today. Reportedly out a week with a "minor shoulder injury."

Something I learned only after driving 50 minutes in the rain to go see him play.

Deuce returned to action today vs Friends Central, and it was a momentous one. He scored 31 points in an easy win to go over the 2000 point mark. He is 3rd in all-time scoring in the Inter-Ac and closing in on #1.

For those who are interested, here is a link to the full video of this game:

https://depreps.forums.rivals.com/threads/malvern-...


Coatesville, which is also Deuce's hometown, features Jhamir Brickus (#2), a 5-11 PG who averaged 28 ppg last year and who has a number of offers from schools such as Richmond, La Salle, Rider, Siena, Towson, etc. Other than this game, they are 7-1 this year, with the other loss a relatively close game to a strong team.

Had Deuce not gone to Malvern Prep, the two would be teammates and Coatesville likely would be one of PA's top teams. Even without Deuce, they went 30-3 last year and won the PA 6A title.

Wow, here's a great, 9-minute video interview and profile of Deuce. He strikes me as very mature and highly focused.

Very interesting video. One thing that I noticed are the various statements about his interest in the point guard position. For example:

“Playing the 1 spot, I know the game’s gonna get faster. I’m going to have to be able to play longer and be able to produce more. Studying the game and making reads, knowing where everybody is supposed to be, and communicating.”

It's been generally assumed that he is coming as a SG, and I am sure that will be his main position as a freshman. But it would be a big plus if he can also handle the point and possibly play a lot of minutes there after Sotos graduates.

It was also interesting that he’s already thinking about the possibility of coming in and talking to teammates who might be 21-22 years old about being lazy or not working hard. Perhaps Deuce also may not appreciate some of the goofing around that sometimes happens in warmups and on the bench. With the NBA as a long-term goal, I get the feeling Deuce will take basketball seriously.

Deuce scored 28 points in a win at West Chester East. With 2,067 points, he's now the second-highest scorer in Inter-Ac League history, having passed former Duke Blue Devil Gerald Henderson.

If he scores just 2 points tonight vs Cheltenham (in a doubleheader at West Chester University), he'll be number one.

I’m so glad we’ve got this guy and Screen coming soon. I expect them both to help in some role immediately.

Deuce with a very nice basket tonight to become the all-time Inter-Ac scoring leader:

Deuce ended up with 20 points and has now scored 2082 in his HS career. Malvern won 85-78 over Cheltenham.
