Justin Turner is listed at 6’4″ and 205 pounds giving him good size to play shooting guard for a major conference team. He will likely be looking for a starting role that can help elevate his prospects for a professional career. The pitch to him will need to involve a real opportunity to shine as a player and as a leader. Turner’s upside is clear to see for a team that needs a starting scorer and a veteran leader.
