Commitment Status Undecided on College Choice

Despite the scholarship crunch in 2014 for Wisconsin, assistant coach Lamont Paris is still keeping in touch with Turner, who listed UW one of his top four favorites along with Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. Turner comes from the renowned St. Joseph program led by Gene Pingatore. Coach Ping brought Turner along slowly as a frosh, but area experts have seen his potential from day one. He picked up an offer from the home-state Illini, followed closely by Wisconsin's third offer in the class to a Chicago-area student-athlete after Badger coaches watched him in an open gym. DePaul, Missouri, South Florida and Xavier have also offered Turner, who went to prep school for his senior season, and will return to Victory Rock Prep for a post-graduate year.
