Turner Looking For More Following GT Camp

2013 recruit Gerald Turner visited Atlanta last weekend, but it was a very short visit that didn't give him much of a chance to see all he wanted to see at Georgia Tech. He had to leave and head home for another engagement as the camp was just getting rolling, so his experience was abbreviated.

"It was a really quick trip and I didn't get to see much more than the stadium," Turner said. He added that he'd like to make a return visit at some point, because he will need to learn much more about Georgia Tech before he gets a good feel for how much he likes the school.

One thing he is sure of is his relationship with his recruiting coordinator at GT, Mike Sewak. He said the two definitely have a connection, and that will help to draw the Goose Creek, SC product back to Atlanta. The visit to Tech was his final camp of the summer, and while he has collected offers from Clemson and South Carolina already, he is nowhere near making a final decision. "I have to see more of the campus before I make a decision on how I feel," Turner said.

Turner had the opportunity to speak with coaches Al Groh and Joe Speed while he visited, and the coaches agreed that he needed to work on his footwork. A middle linebacker at Goose Creek High School, Turner believes his speed and strength are the strongest attributes of his game, but agreed that he needed to build on his footwork.

Now that he is done with his summer camps, Turner is turning his focus to the upcoming football season. He said he'd like to average three sacks per game, and at the end of the year, he would like to have a total of 40 tackles and 30 sacks.
