Speed. Agility. Explosiveness. Route running ability. Soft hands. These are the traits Jamal Turner displayed in just his first three months in a Cornhusker practice uniform.
An altogether average spring game was boosted by the electric play of the Arlington, Texas product. Turner flashed his vast potential with his performance, which included 92 yards and a touchdown on four catches to go along with 111 total yards on just one punt return and one kick return.
As a high schooler, Turner starred at quarterback and was compared to former 5-star quarterback Russel Shepard, now a wide-out for the LSU Tigers.
Interestingly enough, Turner had never played receiver in his life before his senior season, when a surplus of quarterbacks at the Under Armour All-American game forced Turner to switch to receiver.
He instantly turned heads, and speculation started about a position switch to receiver at Nebraska. Months later, he's looking like he'll be starting in the slot for the Cornhuskers as a true freshman.
On top of that, his superior returning ability could get him a starting job on two special teams units as well.
Instantly famous around Lincoln, Turner's path to stardom is paved. All he has to do is walk the straight and narrow, and his immense talent will take care of the rest.
