Coach Brandon Middleton and the Houston Cougars are the third offer for Holy Cross (New Orleans) 2016 running back Tre Turner. Keep reading for his reaction...

Tre Turner has added two scholarship offers in the past week after grabbing his first offer from Tulane in June.

"I'd talked to Coach Brandon Middleton from Houston a few times before he offered," Turner said. "He was telling me how Coach (Tony) Levine and Coach (Travis) Bush like my film. They all said I'd be a good fit for their program.

"Houston has a good program. I think I'd fit in well there. It's a good school. It feels great that these coaches believe in me. It keeps me excited to work harder."

Turner plans to visit Houston, Tulane and Arkansas next summer. The Razorbacks offered the sophomore on October 22.

"I'm definitely going to Houston in the summer," he said.

Holy Cross is 7-1 after losing its first game to nationally-ranked district foe St. Augustine on Saturday.

Turner ran for 59 yards on 11 carries vs. the No. 30 Purple Knights.

The 5-10, 185-pounder leads the Tigers with 582 yards rushing. He's averaging almost seven yards per carry.

He amassed a season-high 221 yards on the ground with three touchdowns in a week five win over Bonnabel.

Turner ran a 4.38 in the 40-yard-dash at Mississippi State camp and a 4.39 at Florida State.
