"I'm not coming out to California to sit on anybody's bench," Turner told BearTerritory on Monday. "They told me to come out here and train like I'm going to take somebody's job, like I'm going to start."
The 3.9-GPA student wanted to take his time with announcing his commitment, and after parting ways with Duke late last week, on Monday morning, he officially pulled the trigger and committed to Cal, giving the Bears five defensive backs in the 2015 class.
Turner commits as a cornerback, and the three-star prospect stands 6-foot-1, 184 pounds. He chose the Bears over offers from Duke, Cincinnati, Southern Miss, Florida International and Memphis.
This past season at Murphy, Turner played mainly quarterback, following up a 19-passing touchdown, eight-rushing touchdown season as a junior with 1,873 yards passing, a 13:2 TD:INT ratio, 1,097 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns.
