Florida State center Kiel Turpin was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA, giving the Seminoles another interior option in the upcoming season.
has announced that center Kiel Turpin
has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA after missing the entire 2014 campaign with a leg injury. This is Turpin's second medical redshirt, with the first coming in 2012.
The seven footer started 25 games in 2013, averaging 5.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.7 blocked shots.
Turpin is not an elite player but gives Florida State a long, athletic body with experience in Leonard Hamilton's defensive system and the ability to protect the rim. Expect Turpin to have a significant positive impact on FSU's defensive efficiency in 2014–15.
