The Auburn Tigers have added JUCO cornerback Joseph Turner to the class of 2014. Turner is 6-foot-2, 190-pounds and is ranked the No. 4 junior college cornerback in the 2014 class. Per The Ledger-enquirer.com,
College of San Mateo (Calif.) cornerback Joseph Turner verbally committed to Auburn on Wednesday according to multiple outlets. Turner was once committed to Washington State, where he was set to become an early enrollee this spring. He didn't graduate in December, however, and the Cougars ended up giving his spot to another signee. After that, Turner reopened his recruitment, and according to AuburnSports.com, he was in Auburn on Monday and Tuesday to visit the campus.
Auburn's Four-star DB signee Kalvarez Bessent’s status with the team may be in limbo after his felony arrest this past weekend. If Bessent is released from the team, it could explain this late pickup by the Tigers.
