Time and time again in the sports world, we have seen several top prep athletes de-commit from schools and open up their recruitment in order to get an even better opportunity elsewhere. 


This time is no different, as 2020 four-star recruit wide receiver Darin Turner announced via Twitter that he will be de-committing from the LSU Tigers​.

This is a huge blow for the Bayou Bengals and coach Ed Oregon, who thought that they had this bright prospect locked up in the future. At 6-4 and 205 pounds, ​Turner is a big, strong receiver that has the wingspan and speed to be a seriously dangerous deep threat at the college level.


Since his de-commitment, the ​Alabama Crimson Tide and the Arkansas Razorbacks have been named as being in the running to land him. 

​​Turner did not the rule out the possibility of returning to the ​Tigers in his announcement, so there remains a chance for a possible reunion. Still, with other big name schools beginning to take a look at Turner, the Tigers will need to bring their best pitch to secure this talents in full.
