The Hoop Group Showcase awards have released their All-Second Team and the All-Underclassmen teams thus far. Today, we are set to release the breakout player from those who took part in this year’s showcases. Our very own Cooper Handelsman selected Malvern Prep’s Deuce Turner as our breakout player. He breaks down what separated himself from the pack this year.

Deuce Turner | Malvern Prep, PA (Class of 2020)

“Deuce continued to put his name on the map with his performance at Lehigh Valley. The guard exploded for over 30 points, which feels as if it is becoming routine for him. The guard has a big-time ability to really score the ball from all over the court, and will continue to both lead his Malvern Prep team to victory and get more colleges involved with his recruitment.”

Turner is set to run with Team Final this year and his stock should continue to rise this spring and summer. His ability to score the ball is impressive to say the least and as you can see with his performance at the Lehigh Valley Showcase, he can do it in bunches. Lehigh, Loyola (MD), La Salle and Bucknell have offered him this far and I would expect this list to grow.
