Turner high on the Hoosiers

Three-star Chicagoland 2016 tight end Noah Turner holds offers from Illinois and Indiana after attending camps at both schools this summer.
The Illinois camp took place in early June and resulted in the 6-foot-3, 237-pound Turner's first scholarship offer.
"Being an in-state school I had talked to them a lot previously, but an offer was never brought up in conversation," Turner said. "After they saw my performance, my agility and the way I was running, they offered me after the camp."
Being the first to offer did make a positive impression on Turner, but he is looking to see some improvement on the field from the Fighting Illini this fall.
Indiana offered later in June after his camp appearance in Bloomington, and Turner is very encouraged by what he sees from the future of the Hoosier's program.
"Personally, I think they are on the come up and that 2015 class is just stacked with recruits. I definitely see them having a bright future," Turner said. "I have a connection with them too - my uncle played there back in the day. I definitely like Indiana over Illinois."
Turner has yet to schedule a game visit with Indiana, but expects to see multiple games in Bloomington this fall. He came away from their summer camp positive about the atmosphere he experienced and his fit in the Hoosier's offense.
"The camp was one of the most energetic camps I have ever been to," Turner said. "Being a tight end and how I could fit into that offense, I personally see myself being used a lot. Coach (James) Patton said I am an in-between guy who could do everything, so there would definitely be a spot there for me to play."
Among the schools that have yet to offer, Turner is encouraged by his reception from Penn State thus far.
"I did go to their camp and after their camp they asked me to visit," Turner said. "They said depending on how good this season is, they could give out an offer.
Turner is also looking to attend games this fall at Nebraska and Purdue. He is coming off a sophomore season in which he caught 10 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown in just six games for Mundelein (Ill.) Carmel Catholic.
