UConn Class of 2014 target Brianna Turner, a 6-foot-3 wing from Pearland, Texas, has the Huskies among the Top 5 schools she is considering. She made the announcement this morning on the website of her AAU team, DFW Elite Basketball.
Baylor, Duke, Notre Dame and Stanford are also on her list.
“I would like to thank all of the coaches that put forth the time and effort to recruit me up to this point,’’ Turner said on the website. “It has been a tremendous honor and privilege to meet and talk with many of the best women’s basketball coaches in the country. This made my decision to trim my list to five schools very difficult.’’
Turner, who made an unofficial visit to UConn last March, said Nov. 17 that she likely will not make a decision until possibly August or September, following the conclusion of her summer schedule. She plans to take at least three official visits.
