Hold the phone on at least one of the players reportedly booted past the Austin city limits.
Both Rivals.com and 24/7Sports.com are reporting that Josh Turner is once again a member of the Texas football team. Per the latter recruiting website, Turner was set to transfer when, “just prior to Turner finalizing his plans, head coach Charlie Strong allowed Turner to appeal to the decision of his dismissal.”
A meeting with head coach Charlie Strong was held Tuesday night that went well enough that Turner was placed back on the team, albeit with what 247Sports termed as “severe restrictions.” What those restrictions entail wasn’t divulged.
Turner has started five games in the secondary during his 37-game UT career. He will be a senior in 2014.
Running back Joe Bergeron and Jalen Overstreet along with defensive end Chevoski Collins remain on the outside of the program looking in and are not expected to see their dismissals reversed. Bergeron is seeking to be released from his scholarship so he can transfer to a Div. II school in the state.
