Each day we will take a look at one or two of the players with a little background information on them.
Rutgers offensive lineman Tariq Cole.
Arkansas cornerback Ryan Pulley.
Louisiana Tech defensive lineman Immanuel Turner.
Today, it is small school running back Xavier Turner.
Tarleton State running back XAVIER TURNER (5-10, 226) rushed for 1,469 yards and 22 touchdowns on 228 carries (6.4-yard average) for the Texans last season, earning Offensive Back of the Year and first-team All-Lone Star Conference recognition. A North Richland Hills, TX native, Turner gained 2,234 yards and scored 33 touchdowns on 377 rushing attempts in 25 games at TSU (2017-18) after transferring from Navarro (Corsicana, TX) College, where he totaled 1,118 rushing yards in two seasons (18 games) with the Bulldogs.
This is a player to keep an eye on. While the running back room seems set, injuries tend to pile up and Turner would be the only “big back” in house for the Cardinals.
