USFNation.com has just learned of some breaking news. Skip Holtz and the South Florida Bulls picked up the another commit for the class of 2011 today when Ty Turner, a 6’3, 240 pound tight end from Griffin high school in Griffin Georgia committed to USF.

“Yes sir, I made my commitment to USF Yesterday,” said Turner. “It’s a good football program and they have good academics and it’s a good place to be.”

Turner chose USF over offers from WKU, Marshall, Tennessee State, Georgia Southern, Western Carolina, with Wake Forest, Miami, Duke, Oregon, Georgia Tech, Auburn, and UCLA all showing interest.

“I decided to commit because USF just felt like the place for me.”

Turner participated in the USF SuperBull camp and said he loved the campus, facilities and playing at the Ray Jay, but the coaching staff was one of the biggest selling points.

“I like everything I saw when I was in Tampa, the facilities and weight room, were very nice,” said Turner. “The coaching staff there is great and they remind me a lot of my coaches here at Griffin.”

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Turner claims a 325-pound bench press and a 450-pound squat max, and for Griffin played more of an H-back position and that could be his role at the next level.

"They’re recruiting me as a tight end/H-Back,” said Turner. “My most improved area is my route running and I’ve gotten better at my run blocking too.”

Turner carries a 3.7 GPA and his team and he are off to a good start this season.

“We’re doing pretty good, right now my team is sitting at 3-0,” said Turner. “So far I have 3 receptions for 39 yards and a TD.”
