Recruiting: Michigan CB Turner gets 2021 class rolling

The Black Knights secured their first commitment of the 2021 class when Harper Woods (Mich.) cornerback Da’Veon Turner announced his decision Thursday.

Turner, who is entering his third season as a starter, had received offers from Akron and Bowling Green and interest from Air Force and Central Michigan.

“What made Army the school for me were the amount of different opportunities available not just athletically but academically and how a degree from there can set me up for the rest of my life,” Turner said.

Army started showing interest in Turner, who is listed at 5-9 and 170 pounds, in February. Turner posted an offer from Army in early March. Cornerbacks coach Daryl Dixon and tight ends coach Matt Drinkall recruited Turner. Turner’s first visit to West Point was cancelled due to COVID-19.

“It’s a great program that has a lot of support and it’s going to continue to improve,” Turner said. “I believe my commitment will open a lot of other recruits’ eyes on Army.”
