The Rutgers trenches received a second Signing Day splash with Meridian (Miss.) defensive tackle Julius Turner's signature. Turner flipped his commitment from Louisiana Tech after the Scarlet Knights built a strong lead iin the last 10 days.
"Coach Ash just wants to win," Turner said. "He knows how to do it. He's won at other places. He's a great defensive coach, so I know it is a great opportunity for me."
Turner officially visited Rutgers for the penultimate weekend before Signing Day. Turner hosted defensive line coach Shane Burnham and Ash during visits.
"I'm comfortable with both of them," Turner said. "I like both of them. I lked Rutgers a lot [on my visit]. I just felt comfortable there. The players, all of them, they were welcoming."
