Tre Turner runs wild

Holy Cross (New Orleans) 2016 RB Tre Turner earned his first offer at the beginning of the summer after tearing it up at Tulane camp. Go inside for the details on his camp outings at Florida, Florida State and Mississippi State...

Tre Turner received an invitation from Florida for the Gators' Friday Night Lights camp and participated.

"Coach (Brian) White said I have great hands and footwork," Turner said, "and liked my speed. He's looking forward to seeing me more during the season.

"It was my first time at Florida. They have a big stadium and the facilities are very nice. I saw John Curtis safety Hunter Dale and talked to him. The Florida coaches want me to keep in touch."

After departing from Gainesville the Turner family, along with Tre's teammate, 2015 WR Michael Chigbu, visited Florida State for the second time this summer.

Tre previously camped with FSU.

"Coach Jimbo Fisher sat us down after the tour for a talk in his office," Turner said. "We talked about the possibility of me becoming a Seminole, and he mentioned an offer will be coming soon.

"At their camp I ran a 4.39. Coach (Jay) Graham said I have great hands. I did good in the drills. Coach Graham, Coach (Reggie) Sanders and Coach Fisher all got personal during this last visit, which my family and I enjoyed."

Mississippi State hosted Turner for a one-day camp.

"I ran a 4.38 there," he said. "Coach (Greg) Knox said I have great footwork and great hands and wants to see me progress during actual games. They took me on a tour of the athletic facilities, which were real nice."

Turner said he has no set favorites although the Gators, Noles, Dawgs and Tulane are all high on his list.

Holy Cross reached the Class 4A semifinals last year before dropping a hard-fought 28-16 decision to eventual champ Edna Karr.
