Commit Watch: How Arizona State commits performed last week

Here's a look at how Arizona State commits performed last week in their respective high school and junior college games.

Arizona State running back commit Tre Turner scored two early touchdowns to help his Holy Cross team defeat Archbishop Shaw 38-22 Saturday Sept. 26 according to SportsNOLA.com.

Turner, a three-star running back from New Orleans, finished with 115 rushing yards on 21 carries.

“Their corners were not the best players on their defense so we were attacking their weakest links and so we did that all night and it paid off in the end,” Turner said.

Turner scored on a 5-yard run on Holy Cross’s first offensive possession.

“It got everybody hyped and ready to play,” Turner said. “Once we came out and scored that first touchdown on the opening drive, we knew it was game on from there.”

It did not take long before Turner found the end zone again. After the Holy Cross kickoff team recovered a pooch kick, Turner struck again with a 14-yard touchdown reception to put his team up 14-0 early.

Even though it is almost the midway point of the high school season, Turner said it was his first game where he felt fully recovered from a shoulder injury.

“Right now I’m just working on getting back, getting the feel with the o-line, reading off blocks and stuff like that,” Turner said.  

Holy Cross’s record stands at 3-1 and it will play Jesuit at home Friday Oct. 2.
