College Basketball’s top transfer, Justin Turner, made the decision to return to Bowling Green on Monday. The news came as a bit of a surprise given the competition but according to Jeff Borzello, Turner said “I’m confident it’s the best basketball decision for me.”

Last week I took a look at what has happened thus far in the transfer market and listed Turner as my best available on the board. Bowling Green finished 21-10 last year and 12-6 in MAC play and, with the return of Turner, the Falcons should be expected to finish near the top of the MAC again next season.

This could have been a much different decision had the Coronavirus not cut the College Basketball season short and completely changed the recruiting landscape. Turner was one of those mid-major players who seemed very set on at least testing the transfer market to see what his options were after back-to-back strong seasons at BGSU.

Who knows what a full March would have done for his already high stock. If Bowling Green makes a run through the MAC and wins a game in the NCAA Tourney does it make his decision easier to leave? Or is he back again trying to replicate this season and take the Falcons on a deeper run? These are all the unanswered questions we are left with, but for now, the folks in Ohio are celebrating the return of their star.
