He felt welcomed there, and he didn’t want to wait anymore. “I sat down with everyone the last couple of days and thought about all the trips I’ve made,” Turner said. “Everybody was kind of waiting for me to make a decision, and I didn’t see a point to waiting until the end of the summer when I knew where I wanted to go.” Turner also had offers from the majority of the Big 12, including OU, from much of the SEC, including Alabama, and Notre Dame, among others. He is ranked No. 87 on the ESPNU 150 list of top players nationally and is No. 55 on the Rivals 100 list. He was also named to the Under Armour All-American team. Turner said it was a tough decision between Texas and Nebraska. “It was real hard because I loved my trip to Nebraska, but I just feel Texas is the right fit for me," Turner said.
