Harrisonburg (Va.) High four-star offensive guard Landon Turner
will announce his college choice Sunday, but he may already know where he is headed.
The three schools in contention are Virginia Tech, North Carolina and West Virginia.
"At this point, I think he probably has it straight in his mind," Harrisonburg coach Tim Sarver said, "but he hasn't let anything out."
Turner is rated the sixth-best offensive guard in the 2011 class by Scout.com. He is scheduled to make his announcement at 1 p.m. at Harrisonburg High, and there is a reason he had loads of offers.
"He's one of the best I've ever seen," Sarver said. "I've been at it for 44 years, and Landon rates right up there at the very top. He's one of the best we've had play at Harrisonburg, and I think he's deserving of all the publicity he's gotten."
The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Turner is projected to play guard, but he has the size and feet to play tackle in college.
"He's got great feet, he's got a tenacious attitude to get after people and he's got all the intangibles that you want to see," Sarver said. "He's got a great future in front of him if he continues to work with what he has."
And Turner possesses something else a lot of big offensive linemen do not.
"He really gets after the people he plays against," Sarver said. "He's what every college wants. That's why they recruited him so heavily. He really gets after folks, and that's something you really don't find in every big man like him."
