JUCO DE/RE Wants to Visit Tech

Raider Power catches up with another N.W. Mississippi defensive stallion to talk stats and assess <b>Mike Leach</b> and Co.'s chances of landing his services in Lubbock.

Chris Turner, 6-3, 275 pounds, had 5 tackles and 4 pressures in his game against Antelope Valley.

Last season, as a frosh, he totaled 58 tackles, 13 TFLs, 9 sacks, 27 pressures, 9 tipped passes, 2 FFs and 1 FR.


Scholarship offers?

"I've got offers from a few dozen," Turner told RP.

Unfortunately, Turner was tight-lipped about which schools extended the 'ships. And he also kept quiet about who his favorites presently are.

"I'm still pretty wide-open," Turner said. "And, I plan on taking all five official visits before making a decision."

Essentially, he'll be looking at which schools show him the most love when it comes to who grabs the all-important right to host Turner for a weekend...

One school showing mad love and already marked down for a visit are the Red Raiders.

"I'm going to Lubbock (October 10-12) to see the Texas Tech-Iowa State game."

FSU, the school he signed with when in high school, may also garner a visit from the defensive standout. However, it has yet be scheduled.

Thoughts on Tech?

The thing I like the most is they're just really up front about everything," Turner said.

Dean: With other teammates interested in Tech, does Leach and gang's shot get better if they land one or two of your teammates?

Turner: Yes, sir. It would.
