Two years ago it was Cedric Dockery who followed his brother to Austin. This past recruiting year it was Brandon Duncan who again will be a Longhorn. This year Turner will continue bringing teams into Lakeview.
Turner is a tall, rangy wide receiver. He comes in at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds. He says that his coach told him he ran a 4.6/40 the last time he ran it. "Last time I ran it was cold. I have to run it again," Turner said.
Turner isn't sure what his stats were last year. They were breaking in a sophomore quarterback that did not play seven and seven with them this past summer because of AAU basketball.
"I have no idea what my stats were last season; I didn't stay up on them. I know that I had two touchdowns receiving and two rushing. I earned second team all-district honors."
While Turner has yet to receive his first offer he is getting some serious recruiting attention. "I don't have any offers yet. I am getting a lot of interest from Texas and Oklahoma right now. I like Texas, LSU and Texas Tech right now."
While he grew up in Texas, he grew up an LSU Tiger fan. He did keep an eye on Texas a little bit and of course has ties to Austin now with two former high school players now part of the team.
This summer may be a bit busy for Turner who will be looking to actually fit in football camps around other things this summer. He is planning on a couple though right now. I was planning on going to the Oklahoma camp and maybe the Texas camp."
"I am going to play 7-on-7 again this summer. I will be playing baseball again this summer too. I play shortstop." Now Turner could be a serious college recruit for baseball as well. That attention hasn't caught up with him yet though.
"Not yet, but around the tournaments are when all the scouts come out. I can tell you more about that when the tournaments are over."
"I bat lead-off. My batting average was .363 last year. I led the team in home runs, runs and hits last year. I had 12 RBIs, 4 HR, 3 3B, 7 2B, 27 Hits, 23 Runs in 75 at-bats. I also led the team in stolen bases with nine."
So which way will Turner go if he can play both football and baseball in college?
"Well baseball I have been playing a lot longer, but I have more fun playing football. I have been playing baseball since I was about six and I have been playing football since I was in seventh grade."
Turner may be spoon-fed Nebraska Cornhusker football a little bit at his school. It's understandable. He has a former Cornhusker that is now on the coaching staff.
"If they (Nebraska) give me a scholarship I'll go. I have Coach Byron Bennett for a teacher at school and we talk about Nebraska a lot. He keeps telling me that they had the top recruiting class. I follow recruiting myself as well."
Following Turner this season will be interesting as there will a year of experience for the quarterback under his belt and giving Turner a chance to use his strengths and a chance to work on some weaknesses this summer.
"I block really well and I am aggressive. I am basically a well-balanced receiver. I am going to work on yards after the catch this summer. I will work on my speed too."
