Irish land Indiana DB Turner


Cathedral (Ind.) senior defensive back John Turner has committed to Notre Dame, according to ESPN Recruiting.

Turner, who is 6 foot and 194 pounds, also had offers from Indiana, Minnesota and a number of MAC schools.

According to ESPN Recruiting’s evaluation, “Overall, Turner has the range, ball skills and reliable pursuit habits you want in a free safety and could be falling under the BCS radar. Could be sharper in footwork and a bit more explosive but has a lot of physical development left and best football is ahead of him.”

Turner is ranked No. 43 at his position by ESPN.

Notre Dame has 11 Class of 2012 commitments. Turner is the Irish’s second in-state recruit.
