Ohio Speedster Taking Visits

Many college recruiters wanted to see how Copley (OH) Tailback Aregeros Turner would come back from a broken leg suffered last season. The early returns are quite positive and the senior speedster is still adding offers, and planning upcoming visits.

Copley (OH) senior tailback Aregeros Turner has been in the spotlight in Ohio since starting as a freshman, and putting up big rushing numbers.

Turner, 5-foot-10, 175-pounds, also is an accomplished sprinter in track, and that speed has benefited him in his career. After coming back strong from a broken leg suffered last year, Turner is still picking up offers.

"I was offered by Cincinnati on Monday night, and that's a big offer to me," Turner stated. "I was on the phone with (head coach) Butch Jones a long time, and we had a great conversation. That offer means a lot to me because it's a great school. I want to get there in the next few weeks, to be able to see the game-day atmosphere and stuff. I was there for camp last summer and liked everything about Cincinnati. I'm definitely considering them very highly."

He made an unofficial visit to Illinois last weekend, and Turner was impressed by what he saw.

"I was at Illinois last Saturday and had a great time," he stressed. "They have a very nice campus and the program is one I think a lot of. I like the coaching staff and they like me a lot. I could see myself playing there for sure."

"I'm also considering Purdue, Tennessee and Toledo," he added. "I'm going to be visiting all three schools in the next month or so, and I'm still open to everyone right now. I'm going to take official visits after my season is over, and I'd like to announce my decision by the end of the year."

A four-year starter, Turner has gotten better each year of his career, and he is playing his best football as a senior.

"I'm playing really well this year, and my coaches are asking me to do a lot of different things," he explained. "I'm not putting up big rushing numbers, because they have me at wide receiver a little bit and also playing defensive back. I'm a better player than I've ever been, and I'm back fully healthy."
