Turner chose Washington over an offer from Colorado.
He is the fourth player to commit to the Huskies since Chris Petersen took over the reigns of the Washington program, joining Newport (Bellevue, Wa.) TE Drew Sample, Chaminade (West Hills, Ca.) S Jojo McIntosh and Cabrillo (Long Beach, Ca.) S Darren Gardenhire.
On why he chose Washington, Turner said there were several reasons.
"I just love the fans. I think that's something I wouldn't get tired of," Turner told Dawgman.com. "I went up there for their game against Washington State and the atmosphere there was amazing.
"I also love the academics. I wanted to get a meaningful degree to succeed after football because unfortunately, at some point, you have to stop playing. I want to study business and their business school is top-notch.
"The other thing is, the football there is just getting better. From what i can tell and what people have told me, the sky is the limit and I wanted to be a part of that."
When he made his decision, Turner said he called the coaches and said they were excited by his decision.
"The first coach I called was the running back's coach (Keith Bhonapha) and then I talked to coach Petersen and they were all excited," Turner said. "I'm happy to have my decision done and I will take my official up there in January at some point."
Turner, at 6'4" and 270 pounds, is a player the Huskies have been on for a while that had flown under the radar until he had an outstanding senior season which attracted the offer from the Dawgs and the Buffaloes.
In addition to becoming the fourth commitment to Petersen, Turner is the second offensive lineman in Washington's 2014 class and seventh verbal overall.
