Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw linebacker Terrell Turner has seen his stock rise steadily ever since his senior season began. That will happen when you have the type of season that Turner had.
Turner accounted for 163 tackles, six sacks, four forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one interception that he returned for a touchdown. His performance earned him first-team all-league. He could still be an all-city selection but those honors haven't been announced as of this writing.
Turner now has two offers on the table from Nevada and Washington State. He took his first official visit to Nevada this past weekend.
"My visit to Nevada was great," Turner said. "I had a lot of fun, but it was cold though.
"It started to snow and that was the first time I have ever been in snow," Turner said. "I loved Nevada, snow and all.
"I talked to a lot of the players there and they all said they loved it at Nevada," Turner said. "The players had nothing but good things to say about the school.
"Nevada is playing the Miami Hurricanes in the Computer Bowl so I was able to watch them practice. I also watched tape of Miami with them.
"I was tempted to commit to Nevada, but I decided to hold out," Turner said. "I wanted to talk to my parents before I make my decision."
"I talked to my Dad and told that it is my own decision because it will be me that will have to live at any particular school for the next four years," Turner said. "My Dad told me to take my visits and then we will talk about it and then make a decision by signing day."
Turner also has set a visit to Washington State on January 12th. He will then take a mid-week visit to San Jose State on January 15th.
Arizona State is also coming into the picture and could end up being in the race for the services of this much underrated player.
