Just finished watching some video on James Turner from Fairfield. Evaluated him last fall and also as a sophomore playing SS at Fairfield. Continues to be physical, but must continue to increase overall speed.
His closing speed is excellent. Strong and sure open field tackler. Turner is 6'0-190. Also has game speed to cover sideline to sideline. Solid 4.6/40 guy. But, I feel that he can play in the box. Strong run stopper.
Takes care of school book work. Carries a 3.6 and ranks 132/785. Plans to major in physical therapy.
James plays for a program that has been down for awhile. Does not get as much hype as some of the other schools in the Cincinnati area. Last winter Jason Krause accepted the head football coaching job. He has the program headed in the right direction. Turner says that everybody is excited. Maybe he will begin to receive his due his senior season.
Plays fast. No question about toughness. Improves 40 time. No longer "under the radar." Like him alot.
