MLB Gerald Turner Profile
Goose Creek High School junior linebacker Gerald Turner was joined by Jalen Stevens, a 2013 outside linebacker, also from Goose Creek.
"When we got there, we met coach [Tony] Elliott," Turner told CUTigers.com "We filled out some paperwork. We went upstairs and got something to eat. The other players were in the film room watching the highlight tape. After that, went down to the field and watched the warm-up. After that, we went to the prospect section and watched the game. After the game we met coach Elliott. He took us to the locker room."
Elliott serves as the primary recruiter for Turner, who received a Clemson offer during the May evaluation period.
"At the end of the game, he was just like he wants me to come back there. I think I know what game I'm coming back to. It's not this coming week, but the week after that, when they play Florida State," Turner said.
Stop No. 1 in Clemson was a good one.
"I really liked it up there. There's a lot of things that stood out to me," he said. "The coaching staff. They knew me, but they didn't really know me. They treated me like family."
This Saturday, Turner will head to Columbia for the South Carolina/Navy game.
Clemson and South Carolina remain as his only two offers, but Alabama, Penn State, LSU, Florida, Nebraska and Georgia are also in touch.
"I don't really have any favorites right now," Turner said. "I just don't want to go too, too far away from home."
As a sophomore, Turner had 38 tackles, 27 assists, eight tackles for loss, six sacks and two interceptions.
