Delray Beach (FL) American Heritage cornerback Joshua Turner gives his Wisconsin visit a 10 out of 10.

One of the cornerback high on Wisconsin's recruiting board, Joshua Turner recaps "a tremendous visit" to Madison.

Calling Wisconsin the team to beat last month, the Badgers may have even helped their chances more with a visit Thursday from Delray Beach (FL) American Heritage senior cornerback Joshua Turner

Rating the visit a 10-out-of-10, Turner said the things that stuck out to him were the feelings he got when he first arrived, when he talked to the coaching staff and when he finished his visit. Needless to say, no other college gave him that experience.

"It was so awesome being at Wisconsin,” Turner told BadgerNation. “Madison is a great town and has a great vibe to it. I can't really explain it; it just feels like home and somewhere that I would fit in. No other colleges have the same feeling. I'll definitely be visiting this fall and will for sure take an official for a game this year."

With Wisconsin looking to add a second cornerback to its 2017 recruiting class to join Kernersville (NC) East Forsyth three-star Madison Cone, Turner sees the Badgers as a school that can develop him as a player and as a man.

"The aura of athletes outside of football, and for football also, Wisconsin really has it all,” said Turner, adding Wisconsin’s staff is “well-rounded” and cares about more than football. "Academics are great, they produce N.F.L. talent every year and turn underrated players, like myself, into big stars. That's a dream of mine, and I feel Wisconsin gives me a great chance to make it to the league."

Holding 15 other offers, Turner said another reason why the Badgers are the team to beat in his recruitment is the fan atmosphere he encountered on his trip. Recognizing the University was rated one of the best college sports towns in America, Turner could feel that energy throughout his time on campus.

"The fans have been nothing but nice and welcoming to me, including the players,” Turner said. “They all showed me around the campus, most even had substantial conversations with me. They all went out of their way to make me comfortable and it feels good to be wanted. I can tell Wisconsin wants me." 

Also saying he had a great visit to Boston College last weekend, Turner is headed to Iowa this weekend. The Hawkeyes have yet to offer him a scholarship.
