Penn State Leads For Ohio QB

The Nittany Lions should have their pick at the quarterback position in 2003. One quarterback who would look good in the Blue & White is Ohio's Anthony Turner.

2004 Prospect To Watch - Anthony Turner

High School - Dayton (Ohio) Chaminade-Julienne

Position(s) - Quarterback

Height, Weight, Speed - 6-3, 212, 4.6

Honors - 1st team all-conference and honorable mention all-state in 2002.

Scholarship Offers - Miami (Ohio), Ball State, Bowling Green, Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan State, Indiana and Cincinnati.

Favorites - PENN STATE leads Notre Dame, Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State.

Comments - In my eyes, Brian Hoyer from Cleveland (St. Ignatius) is the best quarterback prospect in Ohio and the Midwest for that matter.

However, Dayton (Chaminade-Julienne) signal caller Anthony Turner looked very good on film and at the (Ann Arbor) Nike Camp. Several schools have already offered Turner a scholarship.

"Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan State, Indiana, Cincinnati, Bowling Green, Miami (Ohio) and Ball State have all offered me a scholarship," said Turner.

"Penn State is my leader right now. I also like Notre Dame, Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State.

"The only schools that have called so far in May are Bowling Green and Cincinnati.

"I'm going to a lot of camps this summer. I'll be at Notre Dame, Michigan State, Iowa, Kentucky, Penn State and Miami (Ohio)."

Turner threw for 2,100 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior. He'll be a three-year varsity starter in 2003. He led his team to a 14-1 record and state championship a year ago.
