Turman makes SEC pick

One of the most physically imposing bigs in the country is headed to Tennessee.

The Tennessee Volunteers have been working hard to secure a deep and talented class of 2014, and they took one step closer on Sunday when big man C.J. Turman picked the program.

Turman, along with teammate Tookie Brown, took in the Knoxville campus this weekend, and the 6-foot-8 and 245 pound class of 2014 center/power forward decided to pull the trigger according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

With his size and strength, Turman is someone who takes up a lot of space down low and can be a very good position defender. Right now he isn't much of a scorer, but he will give maximum effort and be a physical presence on the low block.

This is the fourth commitment for the Volunteers in the class of 2014. He joins fellow Georgia native Phil Cofer along with Illinois point guard Larry Austin and Louisiana wing Jordan Cornish.

The class could be full at this point, but it is possible that the Volunteers could add another commitment if the right one comes their way. Overall Turman is a solid addition who will add depth to the frontcourt.
