A supremely athletic 6-foot-11 and 225 pounder, there’s little wonder why Turner is in high demand from the entire Big XII and more than a dozen other top programs from the Pac 12, ACC and Big East. Still, as reported by USA Today, what really stands out about Turner is something a bit more particular: His feet.
Turner may have the largest feet in all of prep basketball. The senior currently wears a size 21, but that could very well still grow after his shoe size increased three sizes in the span of just two weeks during his freshman season. Looking for a comparison? Turner’s feet are already just one size away from Shaquille O’Neal’s and three sizes larger than Yao Ming’s. Considering the fact that both former NBA All-Stars are taller and much larger than Turner, that’s some feat (all puns intended).
