Turner Says He's All Dawg

Some Husky fans have been concerned that Loyola (Los Angeles, Ca.) OT John Turner was not as committed to Washington as was once thought. Dawgman.com spoke to the talented offensive lineman recently and he said he is not a soft verbal and is "100% committted to Washington"...

"I am 100% committed to Washington," Turner told Dawgman.com. "I am not visiting Cal this weekend. I am only visiting Washington, next weekend, and that's it."

Turner had been listed as a soft verbal to Washington (Scout.com's policy is to list players as soft verbals when they schedule official visits) for the past week, but we have gone ahead and switched him back to a solid commitment with his recent statement.

Turner chose the Huskies back at the beginning of the month over an offer from Colorado and recently picked up a full-ride from California.

He is one of three offensive linemen committed to Washington -- joining Coeur d'Alene (Id.) OT Matt James and Edison (Huntington Beach, Ca.) OG Jesse Sosebee.

We will have more from Turner after he visits Washington next weekend (January 31st - February 2nd).
