Strengths

Just a good football player. He plays defense, offense, and special teams for his high school and excels at each of them. He shows good explosiveness and speed at the wide receiver position along with a need for contact. Turner is not afraid to run over or through defenders when he gets the ball in his hands. This mentality is why I think he is so solid on defense and why he projects well at the next level. I think he has a good feel for the game as far as positioning goes. He has five interceptions in three years of playing safety and most fo those are just due to being in the right place. Turner is a good tackler as well and appears to be incredibly strong especially against the competition he is facing. I like his size as well at 6’2, 209 he is very versatile. At camp the biggest thing that stood out to me that you don’t get to seen a ton of in games is his coverage at linebacker. Since he plays safety it is hard to learn much about his outlook at other defensive positions. He covered running backs and tight ends very well at camp and looked much quicker than his shuttle would indicate.

Weaknesses

Turner’s film is deceptively awesome because of his competition. He is faster, stronger, and bigger than just about everyone he is playing against in TAPPS. He is consistently running by or through people for touchdowns, that won’t happen at the next level. His 4.81 shuttle is not good enough for the safety position so I think he is really only in line for either the WLB or MLB linebacker position. I just don’t know that he is athletic enough to play anywhere else. I worry about his explosiveness with his vertical and shuttle but his 40 time is actually really good for a high school linebacker so that puts my worries to ease a little.

How I see him fitting at Baylor

I see him at either WLB or MLB. He has very good speed for the position and a frame that should be able to easily get him in the 225-235 range. It will take him some time to get adjusted to the position but I think he will contribute early and often on the special teams because like I said he is just a good football player.

Rating Explained

He is currently an 84 because of the competition he played against, the less than elite athleticism, and because he is being projected at a position that he has not played. Currently his best position is receiver but I do not believe he is good enough to play that at Baylor. On the flip side he plays all over the place and does so much for his team.
