Chaminade-Madonna Prep four-star cornerback, according to a report by 247Sports recruiting analyst Andrew Ivins, Hollywood, Florida Ryan Turner will be making an official visit to the state of Ohio on the weekend of June 11-13.
This is the second time on campus for the 6-foot-0 and 180-pound gymnast who is ranked the 35th best cornerback and No. 386 prospect in the class of 2022 when he completed a four-day self-guided tour Columbus in late March. The trip was immediately followed by a trip to Clemson, the program believed to be the greatest threat to his recruitment, and another to Boston College.
“I like the city,” Turner said to Ivins. “Since we’re from South Florida, there’s a lot going on down here and Columbus is like a very busy city. So it wouldn’t be a big transition from one big city to another big city while Clemson is a really small town where you will find yourself seeing trees 24/7. Ohio State is like a downtown area. It’s busy so I really like that. I really like the city. “
Turner and his parents were unable to meet with coaches or check the facilities during their first trip to Columbus. You’re looking forward to finally spending time with the defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs, secondary trainer Matt Barnes and aggressive quality control trainer Keenan Bailey during his official visit. His mother was very impressed by the program and the surrounding city.
“My mom likes (Ohio State) a lot for basically the same reason I do. It’s not exactly like South Florida, but there isn’t that much of a difference,” Turner said.
No further official visits are currently planned for Turner, although he could certainly arrange one as June approaches. On the other hand, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he pulled the trigger soon after the visit and became the Buckeyes’ third engagement at the cornerback position, along with five-star Jacksonville Robert E. Lee Jaheim Singletary and West Chester, Ohio Lakota West with four stars Jyaire Brown.
The state of Ohio is also in a good spot with four-star cornerback St. Louis Lutheran North Toriano pridewho will be on campus a week before Turner’s official visit. The Buckeyes could be open to accepting both players, particularly with some concerns about the strength of Brown’s promise and interest in Notre Dame.
