6’6″ guard Ralston Turner has announced that he has decided to transfer from LSU to the Wolfpack. The rising Junior averaged 9.3 PPG for the Tigers last season (12.3 as a freshman) and had recently been granted his release to explore other options in light of the coaching change in Baton Rouge. Turner brings athleticism and depth on the exterior, but possibly even more important, he brings a 37.2 shooting percentage from outside the arc. Having to sit out a year under transfer regulations, his potential to enter the line-up will coincide nicely with the graduation of the Pack’s top outside threat in Scott Wood.
In further evidence of Gott’s ability to recruit and develop relationships with his players consider this: Turner is a native of Alabama and Gott recruited him while he was head coach at Alabama.
