ESPN 300 A.J. Turman sets 3 visits

11/14/2012

ESPN 300 running back A.J. Turman (Orlando, Fla./Boone) plans to take all five official visits, and the four-star back already knows of three.

"I'll probably decide which visits I'll take by either the end of this week or next week, but I know for sure I'll visit Georgia, Tennessee and FSU," Turman said on Monday night.

Though Turman hasn't set specific dates for the visits, the 6-foot, 198-pound athlete said those three schools are standing out.

"Tennessee has nice facilities," Turman said. "I love the coaches. I like the city. It's a real nice school altogether. I went up there a few weeks ago with my parents and we really enjoyed ourselves. We had a really nice time.

"Georgia is very similar to Tennessee. They have nice facilities and I really like the coaches. The environment at Georgia is more of a country style. I really like that. The people were nice and very easy to talk to. There are a lot of nice things going for that school."

Turman, who rushed for 1,400 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior, says his familiarity with FSU is a reason the Noles are standing out.

"I've been there a million times it seems like, because my brother goes to school up there in Tallahassee," Turman said. "So I've been there hundreds of times. I really like the town and everything. It's a nice town, it's country. It's a real nice school and I know a lot of players on the team."

Turman said he has no leader at this point and will likely make his college choice at the end of his senior season.
