Still the same: Flaig (re)commits, assistant coach Turner

In an answer to quarterback E.J. Hilliard's Twitter call to hear from all who's with FIU, Vero Beach offensive lineman Chris Flaig responded that he'd just committed.

This is a recommitment for the 6-5, 275-pound Flaig, who originally gave his verbal pledge to FIU last July, then reopened his recruiting after Mario Cristobal's firing.

And though he's been in the building since father Ron Turner took the FIU head coaching job, only today was it announced that one of the head coach's sons, Cameron Turner, will be the quarterbacks and wide receivers assistant coach. Turner played those positions at The Citadel, then coached receivers and special teams there in 2010. He's spent the last two seasons as assistant to Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier, doing off-the-field grunt work and, on game days, keeping Frazier apprised of clock management, timeouts, challenges and rules.

That's great news I was really hoping that he would recommit and he did. Welcome back Chris!!!

Hey DJN, I saw that Jason Rae tweeted that he is no longer committed to FIU. It didn't show that he had any offers from any other schools. Any clue as to why he decided to go?

The U gets Cristobal and Cooley!

We get Turner!

Thanks Pete

@gp 90 not only that we get mini turners and illinois reject butkus and as a bonus conklin from the citadel were def going to make a splash in the cusa... atleast coley was a good recruiter these morons are getting sub par athletes...


Per our tweeter chats, looks like coach Turner and staff have managed to keep most of the 14 committed recruits who were committed under MC. Also has started to add new commits and the fury of offers the last few days have been out of control.

Not bad for no ties, no experience in recruiting since the B1G days, etc...

Waiting to see who is the first QB commit for a recent NFLQBCoach and Offensive coordinator. Hopefully, DL coach Andre can get commitment from Marks and pair him with Faciane, Brown, Dyson!

Gotta close some deals... Let's go Panthers!


It says a lot that Coley didn't get a HC job and took a demotion to be OC at UM, and don't kid yourself, going from FSU to UM in the same position is a demotion. It also says a lot that Mario didn't get the nod as OC and remains a positions coach.

FIU is a smaller program, and I am pleased that the staff that Turner is assembling has a lot of NCAA and NFL experience, more so than our previous staff.
