Comment: Picked Georgia over Tennessee, Auburn, Florida State and Miami, although only Tennessee was believed to make an offer. … Likely to be used on short-yardage situations because of bulk and strength. Will need to improve on speed to be an every-down back in the SEC. … Rated as nation’s No. 234 overall prospect by 247Sports.
Quotable: “Looking at tape on Turman, you have to like the one-cut ability he has. Most of all, I really like that he can run through tackles with a thick lower body. He looks to have great field vision plus the ability to stick it up in there and get the tough yards when needed. In the SEC it’s those extra yards that mean the most, the ability to move the chains on third-and-3.” – 247Sports.com’s Rusty Mansell
