"It really helped out a lot because I got all my questions answered, I got to meet some of the profressors  and talk about my classes.  I'm so excited to be a Golden Eagle and the visit sealed the deal."

His host, Picasso Nelson, showed him a lot about what life would be like for an incoming freshman.

"He (Nelson) was one I could see being a great role model for us who are soon to be freshmen," he said.

That was a highlight of the weekend for Turner, just the chance to be around his future teammates.

"Being around the players was awesome, they all showed us a good time while we were there and they are just good people to be around," he added.
