Awesome news! Congrats Turner... welcome:
Yep - he is gigantic, but he looks like a normal athlete.. just much bigger than most. Moves well and can get around on the field without any trouble. Really all of our OT candidates we've recruited are excellent athletes for their size. The staff gets how hard it is to find a top OT and they are going out of their way to ensure they have the right kids and the right numbers to maintain depth there... (I think the walk-on program gives us a great advantage here, because we can get guys like Hixson, Forbes and Miller for free to both start and add depth on the interior while using more scholarships up front to ensure we get the tackles we need)I like the fact he’s an athlete. The kid played some hoops, so he can run, which plays well into how they like to move people around.
