Standout Ohio Guard Turson to Join Chippewas

An already strong 2010 Central Michigan recruiting class just got a little stronger with the addition of Ohio standout shooting guard Brook Turson, who recently received his release from Robert Morris.

Already rated the top 2010 recruiting class in the Mid-American Conference, the Central Michigan University men's basketball program will now add one of the top shooting guard's from Ohio's 2010 class in Brook Turson.

Turson, a 6-foot-4 sharpshooter from Plymouth (Ohio) High School, committed to Robert Morris early in the recruiting process over offers from the Chippewas, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Wright State, Miami University and many other schools.

Turson reportedly will enroll in CMU classes this summer after receiving his release from RMU. Upon receiving his release, Turson reportedly re-visited Miami and CMU before making his decision.

Since the Chippewas have exhausted their scholarships, Turson will reportedly pay his own way as a walk-on for the 2010-11 season.

This past season, Turson averaged 24.3 points, 10 rebounds, 5.6 assists and three steals per game for Plymouth High. He was named Ohio Player of the Year in his school's division.
