Turner chooses the Aggies

Former Washington guard Elston Turner has been contemplating his destination after deciding to transfer schools earlier this offseason, but the 6-foot-4 scorer chose the Aggies earlier today. The newest member of the Texas A&M family was reportedly looking for a team where he would play a bigger role, as well a location closer to his hometown, Missouri City.

Last season Turner scored in double figurers seven times for the Huskies, leading the team in three-point shooting. His 38% shooting from beyond the arc would also have led Texas A&M among players with at least one attempt per game. During Washington's run in the NCAA Tournament Turner provided a big boost for the Huskies. Against Marquette the Eklins product scored 14 points, including 11 in the second half, going 4-for-5 from beyond the three-point arc. The sophomore guard also scored 10 points in 19 minutes of action during Washington's upset of third seeded New Mexico.

Coming out of high school Turner was rated the 109th best player in the 2008 Rivals 150. He committed to the Washington Huskies in the fall of his Junior season at Elkins High School. Elston is the son for former NBA player and current Houston Rockets assistant Elston Turner Sr.
