Matt Turner

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Blair Academy's talented Class of 2017 trio of point guard Matt Turner, wing Kodye Pugh, and big man Deng Gak checked in to provide a recruiting update Wednesday night fresh off of a hard-fought 54-41 loss to undefeated St. Anthony's, the No. 4 team in the nation according to USA Today.

Temple head coach Fran Dunphy was in the house, along with assistants from Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech, Monmouth, Wagner and FDU.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound Turner, a transfer from Trumbull (CT) High School, said Maryland, Providence, Georgetown, and Virginia have all expressed interest lately.

BLAIRSTOWN, N.J. - Matt Turner transferred from Trumbull (CT) High School to Blair Academy because he knew he had to step up his level of competition.

"I left after my sophomore year and came here," the 6-foot-4, 180-pound Class of 2017 point guard told me Monday at Blair. "It was a good program and I liked the coach a lot but I just felt I wasn't getting pushed enough and I felt I could maximize my potential when I come to Blair."

So far, so good.
