DB Andre Turrentine (Official Thread)

    Those were the games where he would run for 200 yards and put up 40 points on the board by himself. The first time he ever touched the ball in a game, he ran for a touchdown. The second season he ever played, he remembers being the only kid on his team who scored.

    Those, as they say, were the days.

    “Oh my God, yes. I remember that,” Turrentine says, flashing a big grin harkening back to those years as his mom, Jajuan, pulls out her phone to show YouTube highlights of Andre in a big ole No. 79 blue-and-white jersey as he torpedoes up the right sideline for a touchdown.

    “Here you go! Here you go! Here you go!” Jajuan yells. “They ain’t touch him! They ain’t touch him! They ain’t touch him!”

    “You didn’t think about what was gonna happen if you lose,” Turrentine says. “You were just out there to have fun. It wasn’t, ‘Oh, what are people gonna say when I go back to school?’ Who’s gonna walk up to me and be like, ‘What happened?’ There was no pressure. I’m with my family and my friends, out there just playing. That all went by so fast.”

    Freshman Safety Andre Turrentine Could End Up Anywhere In Secondary

    Current Situation
    As a non-early enrollee, Andre Turrentine is a little bit behind many of his classmates who chose to enroll in the winter. It’s not the end of the world for him, but given the issues in the secondary last year, the Ohio State coaching staff would have preferred to have as many freshman defensive backs participate in spring ball as possible. That would have also allowed them to get an idea of where they want to put Turrentine — and it would have also given them a chance to see what he can handle. Predicting where he will end up this year is a guess, but the process of elimination may yield some answers. The Buckeyes brought in three corners and three safeties. Safety Jantzen Dunn spent the spring at free safety. Safety Jaylen Johnson is a “late-enrollee” as well, but has been projected to a Bullet or linebacker spot. That leaves Turrentine as a cover safety candidate, which could be right up his alley.

    What’s the Ceiling This Year?
    The Buckeyes went through spring ball with six healthy safeties — three at free, and three at cover. Because of that, Andre Turrentine is going to have to work his way through a crowded depth chart in order to see time on defense this year. Special teams is definitely an option for an eager tackler like him, but he’s going to be fourth at best at whichever safety spot he starts at. Free safety may be a bit thinner due to youth an inexperience with Josh Proctor leading redshirt sophomore Bryson Shaw and true freshman Jantzen Dunn. Cover safety has fifth-year senior Marcus Williamson and sophomore Lathan Ransom, who both played last year, as well as redshirt freshman Cameron Martinez, who had a strong spring. Turrentine may end up floating back and forth until he finds his eventual position. That will slow down his ceiling, but only for a time.
