John Turner will be a key piece of Notre Dame’s secondary-heavy class, bringing both talent and a tradition of winning to the Irish defense.

As a cornerback at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, Turner led his school to two state championships. His lean frame and imposing wingspan caused most opposing offenses to shy away from throwing to his side of the field, and his coverage skills will allow him to challenge for time on defense and special teams immediately.

Turner made the short drive to South Bend for several games this season, and spoke to other interested recruits about the benefits of playing at Notre Dame.
