No rest for the weary. That's what Barry Turner is going through as no sooner than football season ends, basketball season begins. It's just another thing to add to the mix as his football season may be done, but his recruiting definitely isn't. And now, he's probably adding to his recruiting itinerary this year.
Since his visit to
the recruiting has been curiously still. No visits, no real solid comments about
any other teams and basically Turner himself just dropping off the
Well, while it's not heating up
