Turman's Mind is Made Up

Turman's Mind is Made Up

A.J. Turman is ready to announce his decision. He sat down with his parents, weighed the pros and cons of the schools of interest, and he has reached his decision.

"Me and my parents sat down and had a good conversation a couple of days ago and I know where I want to go to college," A.J. Turman told Scout.

"I talked about the things I liked about this school, they talked about the things they liked about it, and they were happy with my decision. They like the same school that I do and we feel I will have the chance to be very successful there."

Now that Turman and his parents know the school, the 6-foot, 205 pound running back out of Orlando (Fla.) Boone is ready to let the world know.

"I will be announcing at Tommy Anderson's Restaurant in Orlando on Tuesday night at 6:30pm EST. I will get up and thank everyone, talk about the process, and then choose the hat of the school I am committing to."

Turman has narrowed down his list to five schools at this time.

"Florida State, Miami, Georgia, Tennessee, and Auburn are the schools I am choosing from. It will be one of those schools Tuesday night."

He is now waiting for Tuesday night to get here.

"I really cannot wait to commit and let everyone know," Turman said. "I know where I want to go, it feels good to have this behind me, and I feel so much more relaxed already."

After running for 4,987 yards and scoring 55 touchdowns on the ground at Boone High School, Turman is set with his decision.

"I am not the type of guy who will decommit or anything like that, so now that my mind is made up, I am done with the process," he said with a sigh. "I will start to train for college, feel apart of that team, and just look forward to getting there."

Turman is the No. 36 running back in the country on Scout.
