Scouting Report on Josh Turner

by Barry Every - 11/02/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Ball SkillsBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Very lean upper body with wide shoulders and long arms. His lower body is more developed and is the basis of his strength as a player. He is built similar to Ohio State freshman Corey Brown.
Needs Improvement: Turner needs more time working strictly as a defensive back improving his backpedal and balance as a cover corner. Turner is not a huge tackler and has a tendency to hit high and use all arms instead of sinking his hips and exploding into the ballcarrier.
Most Impressive: Turner is a very versatile athlete and if corner does not work out he could easily play safety or wide receiver at the next level. He possesses very good ball skills and is dangerous in space.
Conclusion: Most covet his size and speed as a corner, but he looks his best on film on the offensive side of the ball. Don’t be surprised if he ends up switching positions or at least gets looks as a punt/kick returner.
