Any word on CJ Noland yet? I know his family loves Carlin Hartman, but I kind of get the sense that they want to stay close to home so parents can see some games in person.

Maybe some competition from UT, Baylor, TCU, SMU, etc., but really hoping we can hang onto him. He's the kind of strong guard that will thrive in Moser's scheme.
Iíve reached out. No word.

Mom dad Cj all still Sooners on social media.

He would have a lot more options after his senior season. Just hoping he's sold on Coach Moser.

Gibson, Harkless, Noland, Bijan, and Hill is a solid foundation to build on.

That's a home run hire. Spent most of his career at SMU. Deep DFW ties. Associate Head Coach at SMU and then at Texas.

Dude has extensive JUCO ties as well, and went to school in OKC. Solid.

Anybody know if he has any specialties as far as coaching (ie, bigs, defense, etc.)?

On a 247 page it had a list of guys he recruited to SMU, and they were all guards. Shake being one of them.

I agree with the sentiments of everyone. A GREAT hire for an assistant. This is as good as an assistant you can get and the perfect first hire. It also shows you where his mindset is on what he needs, which is really good.

Larry Brown coaching tree and was responsible for Shake and Ojeleye at SMU, both of whom he helped get drafted with the development. Also look at the development of Texass players last year, something that has been lacking. Great recruits but in the past don't improve much. Look at Jericho Sims. Even Ramey and Coleman. A dIfferent player(s) at the end of the year than at the beginning. Can't help think Turner was a part of that.

You cannot spend time with Larry Brown and be Assoc HC under him and at Texass without being a good coach, and have great connections from his time in DFW and Texass. Not only has great Texass ties, but also roots to Hutchison and other JUCOs. Even sweeter is we did not give Beard any chance to retain him

This is a great first hire by Moser and makes me feel even better and more excited about him coming to Norman.

He got credit for two recruits (Shake Milton and Tyson Jolly) OU really wanted.

KT Turner's dad was a great player for Southwestern State in the late 60's and early 70's. He was an Air Force veteran who came to SW as a 23-year old freshman. He was the point guard for some great small college teams that featured players like Amos Thomas, Archie McGill, and Lloyd Lacey.
Ken Turner was one of the best people I have ever known. Over 20 years later, when he was an assistant at OCU, he remembered me although we never had any contact after I graduated in 1971.
My brother was a sports reporter who most of you would know. Every time he ran into Ken he would ask about me.
He later was an assistant at Oklahoma State before becoming assistant at Ohio State. That is where he died suddenly.
While at SW, Ken met and married Margaret who was from Mangum. So KT has solid Oklahoma roots.
If I'm not mistaken, Ken played against Tommy Griffin who played for Northwestern State at Alva.

We definitely got our "Texas guy," but honestly...I want all the Texas ties we can get. We can be a Sweet 16 team every year just recruiting Oklahoma, Dallas, and Houston. I think one Loyola guy that is familiar with him and hopefully has some midwest ties makes sense, but I want the rest to be more hires like this.

Would make sense. Currently with Northwestern but has ties to Loyola Chicago/Moser as an assistant and knows the chicago recruiting area well.
