Ohio QB names top three
After saying he was down to two teams at the end of October, Dayton (Ohio) Chaminade quarterback Anthony Turner has opened things up again – sort of.
“I’ve opened it back up to three teams,” Turner, a three-star quarterback that is 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds, said. “I’m really looking hard at West Virginia, Iowa and Bowling Green. I’m just waiting on my test score to get back, so I can decide which school fits me the best academically.”
Turner, who reminds many observers of former Ohio native Brad Smith, said he’ll visit Iowa on December 5 and is working on visits to the other two schools. At this point, they’re all even.
“I really like the West Virginia coaching staff and the players,” he said.
“It seems like a place I would fit in pretty good at. At Iowa, I really like coach O’Keith. He’s a great guy and he knows what he’s doing. Bowling Green is kind of unique because they basically run a mixture of the West Virginia and the Iowa offense.”
So you can see Turner, ranked as the No. 21 pro-style quarterback, has a tough decision ahead of himself.
On the field, Chaminade is 7-1, despite Turner having to battle through a shoulder injury.
“My throwing shoulder is pretty banged up,” Tuner said. “The first week I couldn’t throw the ball farther than 10 yards, but I’ve just played through the pain and it’s getting better.”
