Quarterback Chris Turner (6-4, 200, 4.8) from West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade has had a very busy summer on the camp circuit. He worked on improving his skills at the UCLA, Michigan State, Illinois, Purdue and Notre Dame camps.
The country hopping Turner also took an unofficial visit to Northwestern. He currently has offers from Illinois, UNLV, San Diego State, UTEP and Boise State.
Turner also turned in a fine performance at the EA 11 tryouts held in Las Vegas and showed up to the B2G A-Game the last weekend in June.
UCLA and Michigan State haven’t offered just yet but if one of those two schools do indeed offer then Turner’s recruitment could come to a sudden end.
The Fighting Illini of Illinois is also in the think of it for the services of Turner.
“I learned tons of football this summer,” Turner said. “Some schools try to teach you their way of doing things while other schools try improve on the things you are already doing.”
Turner enjoyed all of his camps particularly camps at both Michigan State and UCLA.
After suffering through a tough sophomore season when Turner threw 13 interceptions and only two touchdowns, he bounced back as a junior, throwing for 3391 yards, 30 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Turner was selected first-team all-league for his junior season performance.
“I have really enjoyed seeing Chris develop over the past year,” Chaminade coach Ben McEnroe said. “His improvement over the year has been the greatest I have seen in all my years of coaching. Chris has made tremendous strides.”
Turner is really coming into his own as a quarterback. What thing that has been a constant when discussing Turner is his intelligence. That is an intangible that can take you a long way.
