SEATTLE - Lorenzo Romar has developed a special sense for distinguishing transferitis - the desire…
Turner to transfer from UW
"We just came to the conclusion that me as an individual being here is slowing up my development in showing everybody my overall game, not just mey shooting game. We felt like being here, the situation I'm in I couldn't really get into a groove to show my all-around game."
Turner, along with sophomore Scott Suggs, have been primarily used as instant offense off the bench, primarily in the form of 3-point baskets. Turner's 108 made 3-pointers was second on the team behind the 199 of sophomore guard Isaiah Thomas.
Just being here, no disrespect to the coaches or the players or anybody, they're all family to me, but just to get where I want to go and to be the best I can be, I had to move on," Turner said to Mahler, adding that he wasn't unhappy with Romar or any of the coaches or players.
Turner said Thursday that no one has contacted him yet about transferring, and he did mention Texas A&M or Texas when asked where he would like to see himself a year from now.
"We'll have to see and weigh it out and hopefully me and my family can come up with the best decision," Turner said.
Turner was expected to compete with Suggs and redshirt freshman C.J. Wilcox this fall for playing time in a backcourt loaded with talent.
Turner's 5.9 points per game made him the sixth-leading scorer for Washington this past season. He also averaged nearly two rebounds and one assist in his 15 minutes per game for the Huskies.
