BGSU Basketball just picked up a commitment from Justin Turner -- a 2016 Shooting Guard from Renaissance High School in MI.— Jordan Strack (@JordanStrack) April 12, 2016
BG has its third recruit for the '16 season. This one is Justin Turner, a SG from Detroit Renaissance HS. He's 6'3", which is pretty nice for a SG in the MAC and has had some real success in Detroit PSL circles. He led his team twice to the PSL Championship Game, and he averaged 21 points, seven rebounds and five assists a game this season which is really productive in a 32 minute game.
He's a 3-star recruit on Rivals. He was on the Detroit Free Press' first-team all-Metro team and third-team on the mlive team.
Teams have had their eye on him for quite a while. He got an offer from CMU when he was just a sophomore...and based on other reports had offers from La Tech, UD, WMU...
It is no secret that BG's program has suffered for years from a lack of scoring, especially from the backcourt. Hopefully, Turner can join in with Lillard and the incoming PGs and create strong guard play for BG. Signing is open until May 13. BG continues to need front-court help, so let's hope there is some progress on that front before that happens.
Welcome to the Falcons, Justin.
