Arizona transfer Josiah Turner lands with Larry Brown at SMU
After a tumultuous season at Arizona, filled with suspensions and an eventual dismissal, freshman Josiah Turner is headed to SMU to play for new head coach Larry Brown.
New head coach Larry Brown is already making a splash at SMU .
On Friday morning, he landed his first commitment for the Mustangs: Arizona transfer Josiah Turner.
“It’s a great fit for me,” Turner told Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com.
Turner had a tumultuous first season with the Wildcats, getting suspended multiple times before being dismissed from the team for off-court issues. He was also arrested by campus police last week and charged with extreme DUI. As Goodman has said, though, if Brown could handle Allen Iverson, Turner should be a walk in the park.
Turner, a 6-foot-3 point guard from Sacramento, averaged 6.8 points during his freshman season for Arizona. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.
