West Virginia is getting some good news as a talented quarterback has decided to make a visit to check out the football program. Class of 2022 four-star quarterback Zion Turner told West Virginia Sports Now that he will make an unofficial visit to West Virginia on June 21.
Turner attends St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and currently holds offers from Arkansas, FIU, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Miami, Pitt, Southern Miss, Texas A&M and Toledo in addition to West Virginia.
Thursday morning, WVSN talked with Turner about his reasoning for wanting to make a trip to West Virginia.
“Just the relationship I’ve built with Coach Trickett,” Turner told West Virginia Sports Now. “It’s been so great talking football with him and along with that, he’s really shown me that he cares about me. One of the big things I’m looking for in a college is someone that truly cares about me and that will not only make me a good player but also that will help make me a better man at the end of the day.
“I feel like my skillset matches up with any offense. I feel like I can do it all and West Virginia has the coaches and staff there that can help me become a better quarterback and help me elevate my game. The strength of my game is my ability to make plays and use my legs to help stretch out defenses keep them honest.”
Prior to his trip to Morgantown, Turner will make unofficial trips to Georgia on June 15 and Texas A&M on June 16. Keep in mind, these are all unofficial visits as official visits will be determined at a later date.
“Once I get closer in my mind to making a decision, I’ll then decide where I want to make official visits,” Turner said.
