From Turner’s original commitment article:
Turner is a mid-three-star prospect per the 247Sports Composite. His highlight film suggests someone who can either pin his ears back or play more of a reactive style.
Turner was listed as either an outside linebacker or defensive end at different times, but he appears to have the versatility to play a number of roles for Barry Odom’s Tigers.
Turner’s versatility was almost certainly something Missouri liked, and if the Tigers are to employ the same kind of aggressive scheming with its defensive ends that they used late last year, Turner might be able to crack the rotation pretty quickly.
