RB AJ Turner of Clifton, VA spent much of Friday in Columbia getting a close up look at the USC program. The Gamecocks and several other schools just offered Turner who’s recruiting reputation is spreading to a national level. He also has offers from Clemson, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Maryland, Ohio State and East Carolina.
Turner could offer only a brief comment following his visit but apparently he liked what he saw in Columbia.
“It was amazing,” he said of the visit. “Very thorough and organized.”
Turner said he spent his time with recruiter Deke Adams and running backs coach Everette Sands.
“They showed me all around campus,” he said. “The academic administration, the life skill coach. and I was really impressed with it all. They are high on my list but not a favorite.” Turner is not ready to name a favorite at this point.
Turner also has visited Virginia, Virginia Tech and Maryland. He also wants to visit Clemson.

Clemson and USC are in good position with RB AJ Turner of Clinton VA. Turner visited USC back in April and enjoyed the trip. He has yet to visit Clemson but said they are likely to get an official visit.
“I don’t know if I’ll take any visits this summer and may just wait to make my next visits as officials (visits)” he said. “I have an idea which schools are at the top of my list but I don’t think I’m ready to release that list just yet.”
He was impressed by the personal attention he received while at USC.
“I was the only one there and they took the time to show me around and give me a feel for the campus life,” he said. “It was very organized and they didn’t mind answering any questions. I liked it a lot.”
Turner is leaving open the possibility of visiting Clemson this summer but, for now, wants to focus on his training.
“I’d like to play in one of the All-American Bowls and make my announcement there” he said. “It’s always been a dream of mine.”
He plans to take all five of his official visits and said he would like to determine which schools he will visit before the summer ends. He did not name a favorite.

We're not getting Love or Hines. I really think they want a back that's at least 200 lbs.
Maybe get one of the Williams.

Alright, 247 has Turner listed at 180 lbs, though. I wasn't sure if he is projected to be an every down back in the SEC.

I think Mike Davis only weighed 190 when he got to school....now he's up to 215. Any RB we get in this class will be red shirted.

Here is his junior film.
http://www.hudl.com/athlete/1719973/highlights/25092393

Quick glance...knows how to hit the edge and also wait for his blocks. Also showed toughness breaking tackles.
Doesn't have the best top-end speed, but that is secondary in my way of evaluating players.

Shows good hands out of the backfield, high-points the ball and can be a threat out of the backfield...reminds me a lot of Kenny Miles..maybe a step or two faster.

Negatives: As far as I can tell from film (take film with a grain of salt of course) again, doesn't have elite speed, but is fast enough. In the system he runs, can he be an every down back? Right now, I'd put him as a third-down guy or a spelling back for the No. 1 guy.

Also, being real nit-picky on this one, doesn't always hold the ball high and tight...at times carries it like a loaf of bread. That can be fixed with coaching.

Overall, a good prospect...could def. be a good compliment or change of pace player to a guy like Jordan Scarlett (hoping we can flip him).

Not sure about RS, but def. will be hard to crack the rotation with a guy like David Williams and Brandon Wilds and Shon Carson being seniors.
(With another good year, I think Davis goes to the NFL)

Yeah, I don't see Davis staying for his senior year. Another 1000 yard 10+TD year and he is gone.

Even if he doesnt he has to go. RB's have such a short life you have to go while you can, plus the fear of injury is always there.

I coach against this kid. He is a good player but I do not think he will be an elite college talent. His team won States but that had a lot to do with have a bigger OL and DL than everyone. He didn't have to carry the team like some prospects do.

He may be able to be a solid CB but as of now he isn't coached much on D, they just let him freelance back there. Look for the game film of Centreville vs. Stonewall if you want to see how easily the DBs could be beat if you had time. Stonewall had great talent but awful coaching, or they'd have won. State finals was a perfect scenario for Cville, since it poured rain all week and negated the other teams speed and athleticism.

If I had to guess he will go to Va Tech like most of the NoVa kids do.

Do you think the wet field could have had an impact on his running, cutting, etc.
Most of the pay sites think he's picking us. But I do agree, most of the kids in NOVA or Central Va go to Tech or Big 10......although, UVA is starting to get their share. London seems like a good recruiter but can't coach.

The wet field effects all athletes equally be it hurt the other teams scheme more. Cville runs the wing T and throws it like 5-10 times a game. Oscar Smith runs a spread and wants to throw it 30-40 times a game. That's why I say, the rain prevented Oscar Smith from exploiting the Cville secondary.

I'm not saying this kid couldn't come to USC and be a solid role player, but I just don't see him coming in and starting early or being an elite CB for USC. I how I'm wrong, if he does choose USC, but just my observation.

London is a very good talker and has really done a lot to make people look at UVA but you are right, he isn't that good a coach. A lot lf D1AA coaches rely on getting D1A transfers and just being more talented than everyone they play. That's sort of what London did at Richmond.
