A top-25 prospect in Georgia’s Class of 2021, 6-foot-4 guard Logan Turner is a guy who could have a lot of recruitment options by this time next year.
The sophomore prospect is known for his ability to snipe from deep, but he’s been working lately to improve many other parts of his game.
“I feel like I’ve been a very good shooter throughout my career. And last year my athleticism improved a lot. I’ve been driving to the basket and finishing better, and finishing through defenders and stuff like that,” said Turner.
“This season, I’m really going to be working on my defense, so I can make an impact on both sides of the floor.”
Turner spent his 15U season playing with Game Elite, and that opportunity helped with the progression of his skill-set.
“It was a good season, we had a lot of good tournaments. We had a lot of opportunities to show coaches what we could do,” said Turner. “I feel like I played well, but definitely could have played better. But, really, we all just got better as a team.”
While playing at a tournament in Orlando, Turner says Rutgers was watching his team and texted his grassroots coach about him. He played at the Georgia State team camp in June, and left an impression on their coaching staff. He also mentioned Presbyterian has shown some early interest.
Now, with his junior season ahead at Centennial, Turner — Georgia’s 23rd-ranked 2021 — is looking to continue and make a name for himself, all while helping to lead a new-look Knights team.
“We got a whole different coaching staff, and we lost some players,” said Turner. “My role is going to expand and I’ll have to be a leader on this team, both offensively, defensively and vocally.”
