Cardinals find more defensive talent from Georgia

Saturday, January 25, 2014 12:51 am
The News-Sentinel sports staff will feature a different verbally committed player for the four NCAA Division I football programs (Ball State, Indiana Notre Dame and Purdue) in Indiana leading up to National Signing Day on Feb. 5.Here is today's Ball State featured commit:Position: Cornerback

Hometown: Miller Grove High School, Lithonia, Georgia

Height: 5-foot-10

Weight: 175 pounds

Commitment date: June 14, 2013

Other scholarship offers: Appalachian State, Duke, Indiana, Purdue, Middle Tennessee State, Syracuse, Tennessee, and Georgia State.

Ranking: 2-star (Rivals.com, 247Sports), 3-star (Scout.com), rated as 139th best cornerback nationally by Scout, 183rd by 247Sports..

Ball State depth chart at defensive tackle: Fifth-year senior Quinton Cooper, senior Eric Patterson, sophomore Darius Conoway, and redshirt sophomore Tyree Holder.

Scouting report: Former Ball State defensive coordinator Jay Bateman made a habit of scouring Georgia to bolster his defense. Athletes such as cornerback Darius Conoway, safeties Aaron Taylor and Martez Hester and linebacker Julian Boyd all came from the Peachtree State and Turner looks to keep that assembly line of talent moving. And it isn't like he didn't have options. He was offered by ACC, SEC and Big Ten programs, but chose the Cardinals. He's a 3.4/4.4 guy, meaning he has good grades and can run fast. Turner was Class 5A Second Team All-State as a junior, but injured his knee during pre-season of his senior season and didn't play this past season. With the injury, Miller Grove struggled and finished 4-6 overall. The Cardinals won't need Turner early on, as they have a lot of depth and experience in the defensive backfield. However, Ball State fans have seen the best players be thrown into the mix early, such as the case of Hester and Taylor. But both of those players benefitted from redshirting, which is probably the case of Turner, as well.
