Hopefully he adds some weight. Good runner, solid vision, doesn't go down easy, and can catch pretty well. He didn't get an invite to the Opening for no reason guys.

Probably a developmental guy but he's got that luxury here.

Personally, I think they'll still push for a bigger back but I think this is a very solid pick up.
I saw this fellow on TV the other night in the passing leagues. He stood out and had great moves. Reminds me a little of Bruce Ellington. I think he can play several positions, but I think he looked more like a shifty RB (with great hands). I was glad to see he signed with us after seeing him on TV.

Agreed. Let's wait and see what happens in the next 12 months. RB, CB, Slot WR...who cares! Sounds and looks like a great guy to have on the roster.

AJ has great lean at impact for leverage and extra yards not to mention great vision .. Great pick-up

I think he could play any position he puts his effort into really this guy is a great athlete. Just with our class filling up getting nervous if he doesn't turn out to be a RB.

don't see why he wouldnt stick at RB plus we are still going to get another RB in this class so even if it for some crazy reason doesnt work out we should still be good to go

So what if he doesn't end up being a RB long term? He starts out there for a year, we sign two in 2016 and he can switch over to defense. It's not like he is going to be our workhorse anyway. He is a change of pace back that'll help in the passing game and also on kick return.

OR, as he has already hinted, he doesn't mind playing defense and we sign 2 more backs this year. Assume he took the final defensive back spot.

Any of those situations are possible. I'm happy to have AJ on the team, he's a versatile athlete that could play several skill positions. He'll find his way onto the field somewhere in our depth chart.

Nice pickup. Versatile player who could potentially help at a number of positions. Still, USC either signs a big back (every down type) this year or there are potentially significant depth problems down the road. You (aimed at no one in particular) can't just keep saying we'll get two next year indefinitely. Nor can you go 2 consecutive years without signing an every down type & hope to win the SEC down the road. Won't happen.

USC still has a huge hole to fill. It needs to be filled THIS year & I think it will be.

Cant embed from my phone but check out 1on1 highlights.

He looks pretty quick. Also, Sherrod Pittman looks pretty good in his few plays. Not much in these highlights but just fun to watch.

Wow, Turner is lightning quick. I dunno about top end speed, but you can't watch that and say he won't have the speed to compete. He's a blur

I made the mistake of reading this thread before watching his film. While I watched him score 26 TDs in 7.5 minutes, most of which were 40 yards or more, I thought for sure he couldn't be playing 6A football. He was tackled 6 times in the entire video on plays from scrimmage. I realize it was a highlight video but how does someone so slow score that many TDs from that far out? I'm not sure anyone even touched him for the first 3 minutes of the video. Surely someone can explain that to me.

his changes of direction remind me of Lattimore. Good hip movement, doesn't lose much speed when changing momentum. And damn if he doesn't look slippery to tackle.

I'm happy we got Denson, but Scarlett is easily the top RB in this class IMO. Speed, power and quick feet. Turner looked good in the one matchup, less so in the other, but for the LB it's basically like a goalie's approach for penalty kicks: You guess which way they are going and hope you're right.
