2019 Season Countdown: #70 D.J. Turner II

June 17, 2019
D.J. Turner II

Name: D.J. Turner II
173 lbs.
High school:
Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy
Jersey number:
Last year:
Turner was a senior in high school (LINK). He made 17 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 4 pass breakups, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovery.
TTB Rating:

Turner committed to Michigan in the summer before his senior year. He spent his junior year at North Gwinnett in Suwanee, GA, before transferring to IMG Academy as a senior. North Gwinnett was playing him at safety, while IMG moved him to his more likely college position, cornerback.

I considered putting Turner higher on the list, but the Wolverines just don’t seem to love throwing freshman corners out on the field. I do imagine Turner will play some, because the depth at corner is not great. Aside from presumed starters Lavert Hill and Ambry Thomas, Michigan’s options are untested redshirt freshmen (Vincent Gray, Gemon Green), freshmen (Turner, Jalen Perry), and perhaps a dose of Jaylen Kelly-Powell if necessary. Gray looks like corner #3, and beyond that, I don’t think any of these players will see a ton of snaps.

Prediction: Redshirt
