2021 Nashville TN Safety Andre Turrentine is a 6’0” 175 lbs. safety prospect from Ensworth Nashville TN had 23 scholarship offers including Alabama, LSU, Florida, Tennessee, Florida State and Georgia. He was recruited by Kerry Coombs and running backs coach Tony Alford. He is considered a 4 star recruit, the 6th best safety in the nation, and the third best in Tennessee.
Andre Turrentine Commitment
He made his commitment to the Buckeyes on Twitter late last month. He has a number of teammates that are headed to the Volunteers next year. Turrentine took visits to Ohio State, Alabama, Tennessee, and LSU. He plans to make some additional visits to Ohio State once the NCAA allows.
Tony Alford is in charge of recruiting the Tennessee area for Ohio State. But Kerry Coombs and head coach Ryan Day also visited the high school before visits were not allowed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Ohio State loves what they have seen in Turrentine, his skills and versatility.
Kerry Coombs has done a great job recruiting after leaving the NFL to take the defensive coordinator spot with OSU.
What Andre Turrentine Brings
Turrentine put up 73 tackles last year with 10 catches at wide receiver and a couple of touchdowns. He will get more opportunities on offense this coming year but can play anywhere in the defensive backfield when he gets to Columbus. He is a lanky safety who plays fast and physical.
His coach at Ensworth, Matt Barnes, told reporters that Turrentine loves football and everything about football.
Ohio State 2021 Class
Ohio State’s 2021 class is the best in the country and continues to improve with each new highly rated recruit.
Recruits are taking a look at the defensive backs coming out of Ohio State and going to the NFL year after year and getting really excited about an offer to work with coach Coombs. The Buckeyes could still add another corner-back to the class before it is complete.Nashville TN Safety Andre Turrentine by Steven R
