AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Myles Turner, one of the top high school basketball players in the country, said Wdnesday he will play at Texas, giving the Longhorns a lineup that could challenge for the Big 12 title next season.

Turner announced his decision in a televised campus event at Euless Trinity High School near Fort Worth. The 6-foot-11 center was a McDonald's All-American last season, averaging 18 points and 12 rebounds and nearly seven blocks per game.

Turner will join a Texas lineup that returns five starters from a team that went 24-11 last season and played in the NCAA tournament after a losing season in 2012-2013. Other schools Myles considered included Duke, Kansas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State.
