2016 Hartnell WR Ronnie Turner has seven offers to his name, but he won't focus on setting up visits until after the 2015 season

2016 Hartnell WR Ronnie Turner (6-4, 187) has seven offers to his name, but he won't focus on setting up visits until after the 2015 season is over...

"My offers right now are from Cincinnati, SJSU, Georgia State, Rhode Island, Middle Tennessee, UAB and Utah State," Ronnie Turner told JCFootball.com recently. "The other schools that have been talking to me, but haven't offered yet are Utah, Mississippi State, Boise State, Arizona, Colorado and Cal."

As far as visits are concerned, Turner said he doesn't have any planned, but he's hoping to take some after his sophomore season is completed.

"I talked to Cincinnati about (a visit) and I'm pretty sure I'll be up there at some point in the first two weeks of December," Turner noted. "I should be up at Utah State sometime in January."

Turner is a huge receiver with a big catch radius and so far this season he's hauled in 49 receptions for 755 yards and 10 touchdowns.

"My height advantage over the defense is probably my biggest asset and I can make a play after a catch," Turner said. "I'm not just a possession receiver. I'm very quick with my height when I catch the ball."

This past offseason. Turner got to work at perfecting his craft, spending a lot of time out on the field running routes with his quarterbacks and against some of the defensive backs on his team.

"I worked on my route-running a lot," Turner recalled. "Exploding out my breaks, a lot of technique work, like footwork and quick-twitch things."

As a prep at Seaside High School in Salinas, California, Turner was a non-qualifier, so he decided to go the JUCO route in order to garner some looks while getting his academics in order.

"I had no looks coming out of high school and I wasn't a qualifier, but I'm getting my AA next semester so everything is good (academically)," Turner said. "Hartnell was in my home town and I figured if I wasn't going to be able to go to a University, why not stay close to home and get my degree here."

As he noted, Turner will finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have three years to play two starting in the fall of 2016.
