Jamel Turner: Ohio State Football Recruit Jamel Turner Shot

Jonah PulsCorrespondent IJune 20, 2010

According to ESPN, future Ohio State football player, Jamel Turner, is reportedly listed in critical condition after being shot multiple times early Saturday morning.

Unfortunately, the 17-year-old girl he was with was pronounced dead after being shot multiple times also.

Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel issued a brief statement on the situation Saturday night saying, "I'm so sad to hear of Jamel's misfortune. I have not communicated with Jamel, but am certainly praying for him at this time."

Turner, who played defensive end in high school at Ursuline High School, played football at Fork Union Military Academy last fall, due to him being academically ineligible before graduating from Ursuline.

He is a four-star recruit, via Scout, and was offered a scholarship by Ohio State, Illinois, Michigan State, Notre Dame, South Carolina, and Wisconsin, and made the decision to enroll at Ohio State in February.
