Turner had a pretty good season for our Hogs. Gotta think going from a smaller program to the SEC and starting all season is a tall order. While he proved to play the position well, his bat control is exceptional. Sure he’s a couple years older than most drafted, but he seemed more capable to me than his draft position.

Turner is small for catchers by pro standards. A scout told me lack of size hurts a catcher in the draft.
