Turner Has A Top Three

Speed and shiftiness are traits often found in Oregon running backs. Similar attributes can be used to describe Copley (OH) running back Aregeros Turner, who says he already has a top three.

Do you currently have an offer from Oregon?


What kind of contact have you had with Oregon since the recruiting process started for you?

"I just got my highlight tape out there last week. I talked to [Assistant Director of Football Operations/Recruiting] Jim Fisher a few months ago and he said when I get my highlight tape out, e-mail it to him, and he'll check it out...I talked to one other person before, but I forget who it was."

Outside of that, have you been receiving any mail or e-mail from Oregon?

"Yeah they send me mail and they e-mail me...[I get] e-mail or mail like twice a week [from Oregon]."

What is your overall interest in Oregon?

"I mean they're definitely in my top three, but I got to put Tennessee and Illinois as my top two cause they're the one's who've offered."

What is it specifically about Oregon that has them in your top three?

"We already run that style of offense [in high school] and I just feel like I would fit in there more than any place else. I just like their speed game and I'm a speed back, overall."

How would you describe yourself as a player?

"I work hard, I run my hardest every play, and I block good. I can do pretty much whatever you want."

Is there a guy at the collegiate or professional level that you try to pattern your game after?

"Chris Johnson -- not this [last] year though (laughter). This year I would probably say Jeff Demps; that's who Tennessee compared me to...They're not the biggest backs, but they're fast and they just never give up even though they get hit hard sometimes."

What are you looking for in a program?

"I'm looking for the major that I'm going to college for. Like some kind of arts program or some kind of music/TV program."

You mentioned that Tennessee and Illinois have offered you. Is there anyone else that's offered?


Who else has been in close contact with you?

"Purdue, Michigan, Michigan State, and I think Cincinnati."

As far as camps, unofficial visits, and Junior Days go, where have you been and where do you plan on going over the next few months?

"No, not yet. I'm going to start going [though]. I've got a visit next month...I'm playing it by year and I'm not sure where I'm going right now, but I know for a fact I'm going to West Virginia. That's my first visit, but I'm not sure about other places. I'm going out to Oregon too for a 7-on-7 thing."
