LB Gerald Turner Profile
At this point, Goose Creek High School junior Gerald Turner has only visited South Carolina. Though he has not made any plans for a Clemson visit, Turner hopes to be in touch with recruiter of note, running backs coach Tony Elliott, to set one up later this summer.
The Tigers offered at the end of the May evaluation period.
"It meant a lot," Turner told CUTigers.com on Saturday after MVP Camp at Lower Richland High School. "I've just got to go up there and visit, to see how it is."
What does the 6-foot-1, 230-pound prospect know about Clemson?
"I don't know anything about them, I just know I've got to go visit them summer," he said.
Turner is a little more familiar with South Carolina.
"I know their players pretty well, their coaching staff pretty well. It's a good environment up there," he said.
During MVP Camp, Turner worked out with the defensive linemen, because that's where he will play at Goose Creek this fall.
"I've got a couple of things I need to work on, like using my hands," Turner said. "I've already got the speed. I just need to work on my hands a little more."
Clemson and South Carolina have both offered him as a linebacker. Auburn, Georgia and Georgia Tech are also expressing interest.
As a sophomore, Turner had 38 tackles, 27 assists, eight tackles for loss, six sacks and two interceptions.
