Did Josh Turner convince Charlie Strong that he can walk the line for his final season in Austin? The senior safety was slated to start, but he found himself afoul of Strong's new culture for unspecified violation(s) and was reported to be dismissed. Pending Monday's appeal, that may no longer be the case.
However Turner hadn't apparently had the chance to meet with Strong and on Wednesday,Orangebloods.com reported that Turner was still part of the team.
"He's grateful to be part of the program, to have the opportunity to finish his degree. He's close to getting his degree and he's very happy about that," Kevin Cox, a former high school football coach of Turner's told Orangebloods. "He's excited about having the chance to better himself as a person and a student.
"He's still on the team and he's very thankful that things turned out the way they have."
