The 6-foot-3, 290-pound prospect spoke with CUTigers after his one-day camp stop.

"I had a really, really good time. It was a lot of fun doing some work," Turner said.

He added, "I think the best part of today was probably getting to compete against the four and five star d-1 class d-linemen. There was a lot of good competition today. I had a great time."

Turner worked with Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell.

"I enjoyed working with coach Caldwell," he said. "We worked on steps mostly with coach Caldwell. I know he knows what he's doing."

Caldwell told Turner that he liked what he saw on the field.

"He said that I looked good today and that he really enjoyed watching me," Turner said.

Between the practice sessions, Turner was able to spend time with the other prospects in the players' lounge in the West End Zone.

"We just kind of hung out there, played some pool and some ping pong," he said.

After Clemson, Turner camped at North Carolina, N.C. State and Appalachian State.

A week before the Clemson camp, he visited Clemson for five hours.

"I went and talked to coach Caldwell, saw coach [Brent] Venables. He set us up with a tour of the West End Zone. After that, I got a tour of the whole campus. It was all really nice," Turner said. "After that, coach Caldwell sent me to watch the offensive linemen workout and the conditioning."
