On Saturday afternoon Boston College received an extremely important commitment from small forward AJ Turner. Turner who is originally from Michigan plays his high school basketball at New Hampton prep in New Hampshire. Turner is a big guard with a great basketball I.Q. He can also shoot the three and take the ball to the hoop off the dribble. Standing at 6'7" he will create match-up problems all over the ACC on the perimeter.
This is the third signing of the week of the Eagles. Earlier in the week they signed shooting guard Matt Milton out of Oviedo, Florida and Jerome Robinson who is another shooting guard out of Raleigh, North Carolina.
Boston College seems to be spending a lot of their time recruiting good local talent from the NEPSAC. With the Turner commitment they can now focus on getting front court teammates and ESPN top 100 players Josh Sharma and Aaron Falzon. Both Sharma and Falzon play their high school basketball at Northfield Mount Hermon. If the Eagles can grab both these big men the Conte Forum could start rocking for basketball games again, not just hockey.
