What was the deal with Turner? He didn't really get discussed much because he always seemed dead set on leaving the state. Is he as good as his ranking indicates? Who would be his comparison?One of the most difficult hurdles to overcome when recruiting STA is they typically have a largest group of front runners you'll find in Broward or South FL in general.
Way harder to sell them on rebuilding something or doing it from scratch, they want a ready made machine to hop on.
I still think we can get him but he's gonna be a kid you have to recruit well into the season before he's convinced, plus he'll probably wanna stretch it out & announce at whatever post season All-star game he'll be attending because STA kids can't EE anyway.
If we have room just keep on pushing for him because he's open for a flip just gonna have to wait a lil longer than we will with everyone else.
But if Bama or Oh St decides they want him he's there's, especially Bama because they already have his teammate Dallas Turner committed & they're making a concerted effort into recruiting FL heavy this class & the highest rated DE in Alabama committed to Tenn back in April & he's still very solid to them.
The one little holdup for them could be his size, Bama typically doesn't recruit undersized DLineman, he's not really the ideal 5-tech for them & he certainly wouldn't be a NT for them either. They may just take him because of his ranking & because he's from South FL but he doesn't really fit the mold physically of what they like for their interior linemen because he's not a 2-gap lineman, but he fits perfect for us & could easily play as a 3-tech in our system.
Totally different style lineman.How do you think Sapp compares to Nesta?
He was just always gonna be a SEC kid, from the beginning the only schools he was considering was Bama, UGA & Clemson.What was the deal with Turner?

I'm glad when you mentioned s.e.c. schools you listed Clemson too, cause that's all they are, a s.e.c. school disguised in the ACC!He was just always gonna be a SEC kid, from the beginning the only schools he was considering was Bama, UGA & Clemson.
He's good, aggressive prototypical 3-4 OLB/EDGE rusher, I would compare him to Vic Beasley.
