— The Times Daily out of Florence, Alabama is reporting that former Louisiana State guard Ralston Turner has committed to NC State. The 6-6, 205 pound sophomore requested a transfer in May after a coaching change. 

The new LSU head basketball coach Johnny Jones agreed to allow Turner to explore options of transferring as Turner had discussed with the former LSU coach Trent Johnson. Turner will be required to sit out the 2012-13 season and then will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Turner is from Muscle Shoals, AL and was recruited out of high school by Mark Gottfried while Gottfried was coaching at Alabama.

The sophomore average nine points and three rebounds a game during the 2011-12 Tigers season.

    When it comes to Ole Miss, we dislike them. But they HATE LSU. :)

    I believe it had everything to do with Pete's father going to LSU to coach and nothing to do with State.

    Not sure if this is the intent but he might be a good replacement in Scott Wood's position - big guard, shooter...

    I'm not the least bit worried about "laziness" from this kid. Even if it's a problem, it won't be a problem for long.

    Gott would not bring the young man in if he thought for a minute that he was lazy. If the reports are correct, be assured the Coach and the young man have addressed that issue.

    There will be little room on Gott's team for laziness and attitudes. Ask CJ Leslie!! CJ was a 200%+ improvement over his freshman year. He staill had some attitude lapses, but he had far fewer than his freshman year.

    That will change if he wants to play. Gott will keep him on the bench if he can't produce on the court.

    When you post about an opposing school's academics, you might want to use the right "hear" instead of "here".

    You know, so you don't end up just looking foolish.
