Linebacker Terrell Turner (6-3, 225, 4.7) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw has finally hit stride on the recruiting trail and has seen his stock soar since he took his first visit to Nevada before the holidays. He just visited Washington State and received a new Pac 10 offer.
"Oregon just offered Terrell and he will visit there this weekend," Crenshaw defensive coordinator Don Robinson said. "It is good to see Terrell finally getting his due.
"Terrell has the tangibles and intangibles that you love to see in a player. He is a team leader and is a very versatile athlete.

"Terrell is the only player we have had except for UCLA linebacker Reggie Carter to play all front seven positions.," Robinson said. "He played both ways for us as a senior playing linebacker and guard on offense.
"Terrell is a great tackler," Robinson said. "Like I always say once Terrell gets his hands on you, you are going down."
Though Turner is seeing his stock heat up he has narrowed it down to three schools.
"I have narrowed it down to Nevada, Washington State and Oregon," Turner said. "I just came back from Washington State and I will visit Oregon this weekend.
"Washington State was really lovely," Turner said. "It was really cold just like Nevada, but that was okay.
"The city was small, but I liked that," Turner said. "Everyone is really friendly and in a small town you get to know everybody.
Turner met with his three favorites for home visits one after another on Tuesday, January 16th.
"Hopefully I will make up my mind sometime soon after my Oregon visit," Turner said. "If not I will definitely have a decision before signing day.
As a senior, Turner accounted for 163 tackles, six sacks, four forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one interception that he returned for a touchdown as a senior and his performance earned him first-team all-league.
