"I'm a Warhorse right now, soon to be a Warhawk," "Rudy" Turner told Scout.com. The 275-pounder averaged 13 points and 11 rebounds last season.
Orlando Early and his staff were all over the big fella and he took notice.
"They've been watching me for a year and a half straight. They really watched me this summer. I was their No. 1 recruit."
Mississippi and SE Louisiana expressed a lot of interest and offered. Auburn did some flirting with him recently. The Warhawks situation turned out to be a big selling point for the Louisiana native.
"They have a center but he's getting ready to leave this year and I can come in and fill his shoes."
Turner committed shortly after making his official visit this past weekend.
