Mike Krzyzewski is working to secure a commitment from Myles Turner, a 6-foot-10 power forward who is considered a top-10 prospect in the 2014 class. “I also like how Coach K talks to me,” Turner wrote in his blog. “He handles me like I'm a pro. He says things like: "Myles you're a pro and you need to carry yourself that way. You don't need to worry about all of this media, outside stuff you need to start training your mind now.

It gives me even more confidence in myself.” Turner recently cut his list of schools to eight: Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Arizona, Ohio State, Texas and Oklahoma State.
