It will be fun to see him at NU next fall whether it is at QB or some other position. He will be a very special player

Evaluation

Russell Shepard 2.0, 2011 edition. Turner is one of the most exciting skilled athletes this class has to offer. He is a dual-threat QB out of the shotgun spread, but most of the damage he does is with his legs. With the reference to Shepard-- his style, throwing motion and skill set is almost a mirror image. He is a lean and sleak player with good height.
I watched Russell Shepard for two years... a spectacuar HS athlete

A reality check...

Russell Shepard is not listed on LSU's depth chart at either QB or WR... He graduated early to participate in spring practice and played some at WR last season... He is either injured or behind six players at WR and even a true Frosh is listed at QB.

The something borrowed is sophomore Russell Shepard, who came to LSU as a quarterback in 2009 but dabbled at receiver, tailback and quarterback. Now he is devoted almost exclusively to slot receiver.

Thanks for the link...

My point is that as of the 8/29 depth chart posted on rivals; a True Frosh is ahead at QB and two of the top six WR are true freshman and two more are Sophomores... Don't be penciling this year's Russell Shephard (meant to be a compliment) into a starting or even key back up role.

well the 9/4 depth chart has Russell Shepard as #1 WR. Saw him in the game tonight. Mushberger confused Kelvin Sheppard #11 on Defense with Russell #10 on offense.

I realize this is a Jammal Turner thread. It does show that a great talent can come through and play at a young age.
