Evan Turner to return to OSU?

Evan Turner is a likely lock for a Top 5 pick in this summer's draft.

He's the Oscar Robertson Award winner for the nation's top college player.

So he's a no-brainer to go pro, right?

Well, one Ohio State teammate is casting some doubt on that.

From Mark Titus on Twitter: "(Turner) hasn't officially decided, but he's hinted to me by saying things like 'We're gonna be loaded next year.'

"He's also hinted by saying 'I'm going to stay for my senior year' and 'I'm not going to NBA this year.'"



Ohio State does have a great recruiting class headlined by Jared Sullinger (#2 recruit in the country).   Could Turner pull a Tim Duncan and return for a Senior season?  He's got to be a top 3 lock at this point (top 2 depending on how crazy DeMarcus Cousins turns out to be).  He better get some good insurance.  The fractured spine ended up being a benign injury, but I would have thought it would have highlighted just how quickly things can change.  I can see it now, the Wolves win the #2 pick and Turner stays in college.

I also enjoyed how this was described as being a hint:  'I'm going to stay for my senior year' and 'I'm not going to NBA this year.'"  Pretty subtle huh?

Honestly I'll believe it when I see it.  This stuff leaks out all the time, but in the end money talks.  Still...if anyone would stay in school it would be a guy like Turner.
