Ohio Sophomore Running Wild

Copley (Ohio) sophomore tailback Argeros Turner is one of the most exciting players in the state, and a top prospect for the class of 2013. Turner followed up on his breakout season last year as a freshman, by once again putting up eye-popping numbers. Bill Greene has the inside on Turner.

Looking for the most exciting player in the sophomore class in Ohio? You might want to check out Copley tailback Argeros Turner, who once again put up big numbers for the Indians.

Turner, who rushed for nearly 1,100 yards as a freshman last year, followed that up by rushing for 1,198 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2010 as a sophomore. Turner is 5-foot-10, 170-pounds, and has an electronically timed 10.8 hundred time to his credit.

"I had a good year this year, and I think I'm a better player than I was last year," Turner stated. "I think I'm better at breaking tackles, and I'm a lot stronger than I was last year. I'm still looking to add more muscle in the off-season, but I play basketball and run track, so there isn't a lot of time to lift."

Although only a sophomore, Turner has already found himself on the recruiting radar of several top programs, and his coach is hearing from some of the best in the Midwest.

"I know Oregon and Texas A&M have already contacted my coach looking for film," he added. "I know there have been other schools too, but I don't know who, for sure. I know Ohio State has sent mail to the school, but it's still early for the sophomores and I know that."

"My favorite schools would be Oregon, Miami and Ohio State, right now," he explained. "I've always been a fan of the "U" all my life, and that might be my number one school. I like the Oregon offense, and it would seem to fit my size and style. Then there's Ohio State, and it's one of the top programs in the country."

Although with Turner's size, he probably doesn't project as a tailback at the next level, but his speed and cutting ability make him a certain Division-I prospect, possibly as a slot receiver or defensive back.
