Clemson added to its 2022 recruiting class on Sunday when 2022 WR Cole Turner announced a verbal pledge to the Tigers.
"Committed," Turner tweeted. "I'm #AllIn and ready to work!!"
Turner, who is the younger brother of former Clemson safety Nolan Turner, picked up an offer from the Tigers on New Year's Eve. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound wideout out of Vestavia Hills High in Alabama, had long been on Clemson's radar, and due to some attrition at the position, the coaching staff was finally able to pull the trigger and offer the speedy wideout.
Short On Catchers, One of 'Most Selfless, Hardest Workers' On Team Steps Up for Tigers
With catchers Jonathan French and Cooper Ingle both limited by injuries, freshman Reed Garris has stepped in and admirably filled that role for Clemson behind the plate.
Clemson’s Max Wagner is Chasing History
CLEMSON, S.C. — When Khalil Greene hit 27 home runs to set a Clemson single-season record in 2002, it was a mark no one thought would be broken.
Clemson’s Millie Thompson Produces Rare Feat
CLEMSON, S.C. — Getting a no-hitter is rare. Getting one in a postseason game is rare. Doing it in the first ever postseason game you pitched, and it is your team’s first time hosting a postseason game – now that is rare.
"Cole's been on their radar," Turner's high school coach Sean Calhoun told All Clemson. "I think they had a player or two go in the portal and it's just amazing how things happen. Then (that) morning coach Grisham called, told him that he had a full scholarship offer to Clemson and then he gave me a call, which is always great. I mean, you always want the coaches to call the high school coach. And so when they do, it always makes me feel better."
As a senior, Turner reeled in 42 catches for 581 yards, with seven touchdowns. He also returned kicks, averaging 19.5 yards per punt return and 34.5 yards on kickoff returns, returning one of each for a touchdown. It was a season that saw Turner rack up 1,160 all-purpose yards.
The addition of Turner now gives Clemson 13 players in the 2022 recruiting class, with 12 of those signing during the early signing period. The Tigers now have three wide receivers as part of the current class, as Turner joins previously signed wideouts Antonio Williams and Adam Randall.
