One of the key juco targets they are looking at attends Brent Schaeffer's old school, College of Sequoias.
Woodney turned in some impressive numbers last season
as he picked off 5 passes and had a conference best 24 pass breakups in 10 games
"I think my biggest thing is my speed and my willing to
learn," added Woodny Turenne.
Woodney is also a track star for College
of Sequoias, as he won the California juco track meet in the 100 meter dash with
a 10.5 run.
"In high school (at Stranahan, FL), I placed 2nd in state
in the 100 and 200 meter race in my senior year. My junior year, I placed 3rd
in the 100 and 200. My sophomore year, I also placed 3rd in the 100 and 200. I
have always loved to compete in track, probably as much as I do in football."
did this former Florida prep star end up in California?
Seigal coached my two cousins at Dodge City CC (KS). I just liked how they ran
Which colleges are at the top of Woodney's list?
Michigan, Ole Miss, and UCLA are all up there."
Turenne has also received
additional offers from USC, FSU, and Miami, but those four schools seem to be
showing him the most interest.
"They have all offered me, but them
four just stay on me the most. I hear from them almost everyday. You want to go
where you feel wanted, and they are doing a good job of that."
Woodny had a chance to take in some visits this summer?
"I went on
an unofficial to Florida when I went back home. I have an official visit set up
with them in September."
What did Woodny learn about the Gators during
"I got to learn what kind of defense they will run and the
personality of the staff."
Turenne grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, FL;
does this give the Gators the edge?
"No, but it does not hurt either."
got Woodny interested in Ole Miss?
"Well, they were one of the few
schools who offered me when I was in high school. And then my boy Brent (Schaeffer)
signed with them. We talk a lot, and he thinks I would like it there. I am just
going to go down on an official and see what it is all about."
attracts Turenne to Michigan?
"They have a good history of CB's, and
they are willing to go man on man in coverage."
do not know too much about them. I just know one of their coaches. He use to coach
for South Florida when he was recruiting me out of high school. But I hear they
have a real good program."
What exactly is Woodny looking for on the
"I am looking for a team I can win with and play right
away that fits my coverage style. I like to play man on man. Just basically where
I feel at home."
When will Turenne graduate?
May, but there is a chance I will get out in December."
