Recruiting: Top JUCO Prospect To Visit OSU

Chalk up another gold star for Cowboys assistant Curtis Luper. The same coach that recruited high school All-American defensive end Richetti Jones out of Dallas (Lincoln), Texas, is at it again. Luper has Woodny Turenne, the top junior college prospect in the nation, coming in for a visit this weekend.

A Florida native out of Fort Lauderdale (Stranahan), Fla., Turenne was a high school track star that played wide receiver before shifting to safety his senior high school season. He has totalled eight interceptions playing cornerback and earning All-American honors at College of the Sequoias in Vasallia, Calf.

"Coach Luper gave me a call," Turenne said over the phone Thursday night. "He talked to me about Oklahoma State and maybe coming for a visit. He's a good guy and we have a chemistry, so I decided to go ahead and check it out."

Turenne, who told me he is 6-0, not the listed 6-2 or 6-1, and weighs 180 pounds is lightning on the field with a legit 4.28 clocking in the 40. He has already visited Florida (9/30), Lousiville (Dec.), and Washington State (Dec.).

"Wisconsin and Iowa State also want me to take a visit, but I'm not sure what I am going to do there," added Turenne. "I'm still looking for the right school. I'd like to make a decision soon."

Turenne has more than 30 offers and he is scheduled to graduate from College of Sequoias in May so he would be a summer report.
