Turner Confirms He's a Tar Heel

Casey Turner confirmed to Inside Carolina on Friday afternoon that he has made his second verbal commitment switch. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound tailback switched from Rutgers and UNC.

Originally, Turner, a Jacksonville (Fla.) White product, verbally committed to Florida International back in October. He then switched his pledge to Rutgers in early December after officially visiting the school.

Turner officially visited UNC last weekend and returned declaring he would choose between the Tar Heels and Rutgers.

He ran for 1,950 yards with 20 touchdowns as a junior, earning First-Team All-State honors. As a senior he put up even bigger numbers, recording 2,400 yards and 31 touchdowns.
