Asa Turner

UW Offers Versatile '19 Athlete

The Huskies were in Carlsbad (Ca.) on Tuesday and after watching 2019 WR/DB Asa Turner work out, they made him an offer...

"Coach (Jimmy) Lake came down and saw me working out and he said he thought I moved really well and had good ball skills for a guy my size and he wanted to offer me as a safety," Turner told "Actually, the Arizona coach was here and they like me as a wideout, so he was watching me catch passes and run routes, but then coach Lake showed up and watched me work out too.

"I actually didn't even know he was there, so it was kinda a surprise to me, but it was really cool to have him say he liked me enough to offer. That's a special offer to me."

This wasn't Turner's first interaction with the Huskies either.

"My teammate, Cameron Thomas, and I went up there when my coaches were up there for the coaches' clinic (April 14th)," Turner noted. "It was great to see a practice there and meet with the coaches.

"Honestly, it was my first campus visit and still it's my only campus visit so far, so it sorta just blew me away with how great it was. From the facilities to the campus to the stadium right on the water there and the city is amazing, it was really something that I really enjoyed."

In addition to his offer from Washington, Turner also has offers from BYU, Hawaii, San Diego StateUtah, Utah State and Washington State.

"UCLAArizonaArizona StateSan Jose State and Fresno State are all recruiting me too, but none of them have offered yet," Turner noted.

As far as camps are concerned, Turner hasn't made any plans other than to hit camps at SDSU and California.

"My brother (Dakota Turner) is a defensive end at San Diego State, so I'll definitely hit their camp and my sister is up at Cal-Berkeley so I will probably head up to that camp because I will have a place to stay," Turner noted.

As a sophomore last season for Carlsbad, Turner finished with 21 receptions for 382 yards and two scores while racking up 30 tackles and five interceptions on the defensive side of the ball. Top Stories
