Maurice Turner, an incoming freshman running back at U of L, was recently among a group of rising football players who had the chance to sprint with Tyreek Hill, widely regarded to be one of the fastest players in the NFL.
Turner went step-for-step with “The Cheetah,” and received an autographed pair of cleats as a reward.

Turner, a product of Coffee High School in Nicholls, Ga., was a three-star prospect who picked the Cards over Tennessee and Cincinnati, among others. He mostly played wide receiver in high school, but most of the schools recruiting him recruited him as a running back.
While he’s listed as a running back on U of L’s official roster, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Turner could see the field inside Cardinal Stadium as a receiver. Regardless of where he plays, Turner’s absurd speed should result in him seeing the field sooner rather than later.
Just don’t let Nick Saban see this.
