From an AJ-C story today about early commitments:
… Finally in December, Florida State made an offer. Turner turned them down.
“They wanted me to grayshirt and come in January of 2009,” Turner said.
In other words, he would graduate ECI, not playin the fall of 2008 or be with the team and be the first recruit of the 2009 class for the Seminoles.
Turner didn’t want to wait and accepted an offer from Division I-AA Appalachian State, the three-time defending national champs.
“I didn’t want to wait to play,” Turner said. “And I wanted to be at a place that plays for titles.”
