2004 Signee Ready to Make an Impact
"Everything has been going fine. I'm trying to finish this college algebra class so I can get to Alabama," Turner said.
When asked if Turner had graduated, a requirement by the way, for Turner to enroll at the University of Alabama, Turner replied, "Yes, I have graduated. I have to take this college algebra class before I can enroll at Alabama. I have a B in the class."
"It (the class) ends in about seven more days. When I get finished, I am Bama bound."
Turner has been staying in contact with the Alabama coaches and said, "I talk to Coach Woods about once or twice a week. I'm so ready to get down there. They sent me a work-out program, and I have been working-out everyday. I'm ready to get there so I can contribute."
Turner feels he can come in and make an immediate impact. "If I get a chance to come in and play, I think I will prove myself to everyone," Turner added.
"Coach Shula is a young coach. I feel like we will all grow together. I believe we will win a SEC Championship and be playing in a big bowl game very soon," Turner replied when asked about the future of the Crimson Tide.
