Recruiting Heats Up For Landon Turner

2011 prospect Landon Turner talks to TSR's Danny Miller about the Terps and recruiting.

Midway through his junior year, the recruiting process is in full swing for Landon Turner.

Turner is back on the field and feeling great after a broken ankle kept him sidelined for all of his sophomore season. “It's back to one-hundred percent, if not better,” Turner said. The mental aspect of the injury has not affected him either, and no timidity has affected his play. Landon says it is getting better and better each game.

With the ankle injury now behind him, the 4-star lineman is able to focus on his junior season, as well as recruiting. Landon Turner has been able to narrow his focus onto ten schools, six of which he is favoring.

Virginia Tech, North Carolina, West Virginia, Maryland, Georgia, and Ohio State are the six main schools that Turner is considering.

Turner has visited Ohio State and Georgia, and plans on visiting West Virginia this upcoming weekend. He also mentioned he will look into Penn State and Michigan State a little more closely come the Spring time.

When it comes to Maryland, Turner is able to look past their poor season. He said it is definitely something to consider, but he will not base his college decision off of something such as season performance.

With his school boasting a 5-1 record, Landon Turner is focused on high school, as well as balancing out the recruiting process.

“It gets busy sometimes. I got school and football, that's always first, and then I focus on recruiting. For the most part, it's fun to go through,” said Turner.
