Kent Turene, Linebacker Kent Turenne, who with a release from USC the weekend, has signed with Georgia on Wednesday morning. The 6 feet 3 inches, 225 pounds linebacker Boyd Anderson High in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., committed to USC seven months ago, but opened his recruitment after visiting Bulldogs, Texas Tech and Nebraska in January.
Turenne, which would have added depth to a position much more necessary for the Trojans, entered the room with a hat from Texas Tech before throwing out a hat and entering Georgia. He is listed as a four-star linebacker to the outside by ESPN and is a three star recruit at linebacker, according to Scout and Rivals.
A 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, Turenne reports for posting a hat Texas Tech – the other school in competition with Georgia and USC – but his letter of intent was sent to late morning Wednesday at the offices of football in Georgia, and the day keeps getting better for Mark Richt and company. The native of Lake Lauderdale, Florida, should be a welcome sight to a linebacking corps that lost Darryl Gamble, Akeem Dent, Justin Houston and Marcus Dowtin.
Turenne decision came in response to highly touted defensive back and linebacker Malcolm Mitchell Ramik Wilson signed with the Bulldogs.
UPDATE: After the surprise engagement Turenne, the upper end tension in the country, Jay Rome, sent his papers in the offices of Georgia football. Rome, Mitchell’s teammate at Valdosta High School, was the latest big name to commit to the left edge of Georgia not signed Wednesday morning.
Rome is considered by many screening services are physical and athletic enough to compete immediately for playing time next season. FL linebacker Kent Turenne. I think Turenne is one of the steals of the class, as I will explain in an upcoming feature on him TMI. Turenne is also a good example of recruitment services that can go wrong in the assessment of the prospect, at least in the opinion of this blogger. Stay tuned for that. Turenne also confirms the commitment rule National Signing Day # 76: Never leave a recruit in a funny hat.
