Turner Likes ISU

Kelly Turner has not been highly recruited up to this point, but things might be picking up for the offensive lineman out of the state of Texas. Turner camped at Iowa State a few weeks back and he talked to CN about that and why he's under the radar. Get the scoop here.

Kelly Turner made the long trip from Texas to Iowa a few weeks ago when he camped at Iowa State.


Turner, a 6'3, 260 pound offensive lineman out of Highland Park HS in Dallas hasn't been highly recruited to this point, but that might change when he begins his senior season.


Turner, a senior at Highland Park has played behind a three year starter for the past three years, so it's been hard for him to turn heads.


"I played behind a three year starter so it was hard to get playing time. I still got a sufficient amount of playing time," Turner said.


Now, as a starter, Turner hopes to get more offers from some big-time programs, Iowa State being one of them.


As of now, Turner's only offer is from SMU. Iowa State is the only big-time program really recruiting Turner at this point, but he's getting a lot of attention from other small programs across the country.


As for Iowa State, an offer would be appreciated by Turner.


"They would be pretty high up there. It would be great playing in the Big 12," Turner said.


Turner is a Tony Alford recruit. He worked very closely with Barney Cotton at camp though.


"I worked primarily with Coach Cotton. I thought he was a good guy. We worked on a lot of footwork and all that stuff," Turner said. "I got great impressions from the camp. It was a great camp and I learned a lot of great fundamentals."


Iowa State still hasn't offered but with the attention he's getting, Turner feels like an offer could be on its way.


"I kind of expect something coming from the coaches," Turner said.
