Turner gets Turner

To answer the question asked on Twitter, yes, this is what I mean by standing your ground. Also, making use of local contacts.

The Herald's Manny Navarro reported that Fort Lauderdale Dillard coach Lorenzo Davis told him that Dillard wide receiver Dennis Turner, who decommitted from the University of Miami in December, committed Sunday to FIU. Already at FIU -- Turner's high school quarterback Bud Martin.

Turner, 5-11, 175, is rated at three stars by ESPN.com, 247sports.com and Scout.com and two stars by Rivals.com.

Making a bit of a comeback on the long MLK Day weekend, FIU went north to get some linemen, which aren't always plentiful down here.

According to Rivals.com, FIU has flipped Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County High offensive guard Trayvon Williams, who had been committed to Marshall. FIU also got a commitment from offensive lineman Daquane Wilkie out of Orlando Oak Ridge.

Williams, 6-3, 315, is rated at three stars by ESPN.com, 247sports.com, two stars by Rivals.com and unrated by Scout.com. Wilkie, 6-4, 250, is unrated by any of the recruiting services.
