RB, Turrentine makes his pledge to the Black Knights
The Black Knights picked up their 8th commitment and first running back as Trenton Turrentine made his pledge just moments ago and becomes the newest member of the 2010 recruiting class.
"I committed to Army just a few moments ago when I spoke to Coach Waugh," declares an excited Turrentine.
"After my official visit to Idaho State on the 18th, I set down with my parents and we talked about it, and I talked to my head coach where we laid it out
the plus and minuses. Overall I felt good with the Army coaching staff, they would take care of me and I would have a chance to do something special there.
Coach Waugh was pretty excited and he congratulated me, and that I would fit perfectly into the offense. Please let the fans know that it's great to be a Black Knight."
Turrentine, who is recruited as a slotback, will make his first stop at the USMAPS.
The Carrollton (Tx.) Central High School prospect rushed for 600 yards on 138 carries, along with 11 touchdowns this past season.
At 5-foot-10, 200 pounds, Turrentine is a solidly build all-purpose back. "Some of the kids may not remember this name," shares a laughing Head Coach Bart Helsley who coaches Turrentine at Central and spoke to GBK.com in December. "I would compare him to the style of Roger Craig, where he will get the knees up and lower his shoulder, but can make people miss as well."
Turrentine's self-assessment of his style mirrors that of his head coach. "In traffic I will put my head down and make things happen
I'm more of a hard nose type of runner," confirms Texas prospect.
Turrentine's dad is a West Point graduate, who played running back for Army back in the 70s.
GBK.com will have a more in-depth update on Turrentine later this week.
