A standout at Muscle Shoals (Ala.) High, Turner had plenty of collegiate options, but he opted for Trent Johnson and LSU.
"It's like a big weight lifted off my chest," Turner told the Times Daily. "I feel like now I can get back and focus on being a kid again. It brings a smile to my face just thinking about it."
"I went down there last weekend, went to the football game, met with the staff," Turner told the newspaper. "It felt like it was the right way to go. I felt like coach Johnson had my best interest in mind when I went down there. I felt close to all the coaches that recruited me, but especially coach Johnson."
The three-star prospect averaged 21 points and nine rebounds a game during his junior season.
