The Skinny on Turner From Analyst Chad Simmons: Played quarterback in high school, as an athlete, he will likely move to another position in college. He is a natural athlete who can run and who is very fluid. He did a lot of damage in high school with his legs at quarterback. Good length, nice burst, and someone who could excel at wide receiver in time.
QB Stats: 296-of-431 passes (68.7%) for 3,879 yards and 34 touchdowns, while adding 2,334 rushing yards and 27 scores on 351 carries. He was named the News 5 Player of the Year as a 2014 senior when he totaled 1,873 passing yards on 147-of-216 passing (68.1%) with 13 touchdowns, while adding 1,097 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns on the ground over 160 carries.
BT’s Take: Ranked as a wide receiver, Turner has spent all of his off hours turning himself into a Pac-12 defensive back. The former Duke commit with a 3.9 GPA played mainly as a quarterback this past season, and didn’t play a single defensive snap. That, to me, says he’s ticketed to redshirt, especially with two JuCo defensive backs coming in as a part of this class. His speed (4.41 40 time) will make him stand out, but he needs some polish.
Sonny's Take: “Trey is a really good athlete who can run and changes direction well. He played high school quarterback but can do a lot of different things. He’s a physical player that also has length.”
