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
"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.
