With several official visitors in Lexington this weekend deciding to continue their future at Kentucky, expectations were Akron (Ohio) Copley running back Aregeros Turner may do likewise. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound back returned from his Kentucky official visit Sunday and reported on the trip.
"I didn't commit or anything, and I am still looking, but I liked it," Turner said. "I liked the school, liked the way the fans are around the whole program. With the new coaches coming in, they are excited to turn everything around."
Both of Turner's parents accompanied him on the official visit. Junior running back Jonathan George was his host, and the Wildcats project Turner in their backfield if he does sign with them next month.
"They want me to play running back and the opportunity is great for me to play next year," Turner said. "They want to use me at slot also. That's what I wanted to do when I went to college, so that's perfect."
Turner was one of more than a dozen scheduled official visitors in Lexington this weekend. Several of those prospects committed to the Wildcats over the weekend, including fellow Ohioans Kyle Meadows and Lovell Peterson.
"The recruits in my class, we talked a lot and everyone's excited about [Kentucky]," Turner said.
Turner does not have a date set for when he will make his college selection, but he is looking to see a couple more schools before rendering his final decision.
"I am trying to visit Cincinnati and Tennessee still," he said.
Turner was committed to Cincinnati prior to Butch Jones' departure for Tennessee. He remains uncommitted heading into the final weeks before National Signing Day.
