South Carolina offered when Turner was a ninth grader. His only college visit so far has been to Columbia.

Clemson could be the next to offer. On Monday, defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison are expected to stop by Goose Creek High School.

"I know Clemson is high up there," Turner told CUTigers.com when asked about his next offer. "And Georgia Tech is up there."

What does the 6-foot-1, 240-pound linebacker know about the Tigers?

"They've got a good program. That's basically all that I know."

How about the Gamecocks? "I know they've got a good coaching staff. They know how to treat their players and I know the education is good."

Along with Clemson, South Carolina and Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Auburn are also expressing interest.

Turner has already started to draw out summer plans.

"I'm going to go to some camps and some showcases," Turner said. "I know in June I'm going to the MVP camp. On the 22nd, I'm going to the Gamecock showcase."

The rising junior already has a good idea of what to look for at the next level.

"Location and environment of the school," he said. "Not too far and not too close. Somewhere around the area."

As a sophomore, Turner had 38 tackles, 27 assists, eight tackles for loss, six sacks and two interceptions.

He was in on nine tackles and had six sacks as a freshman.
