A major 2020 four-star wide receiver is back on the market tonight. Memphis (Tenn.) Central’s Darin Turner has decommitted from LSU.
Turner originally committed to LSU in late-March 2018. He recently added offers from Miami (Fla.) and Alabama though and also attended a Junior Day at Arkansas.
Turner is the No. 18 wide receiver in the 2020 class, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings. He’s also the 81st-overall player in the 2020 cycle.
“I would like to take a moment to thank the amazing staff and recruiting team of LSU for expressing their interest in me as a football player, however at this time I am withdrawing my verbal commitment to attend LSU,” Turner tweeted tonight.

Fortunately for LSU, the Tigers still have a formidable collection of verbal commitments even without Turner. Included in this haul are four-star wide receivers Kayshon Boutte and Kris Abrams-Draine.
LSU’s 2020 recruiting class ranks third nationally as of now.
