DeAntre Turman, an 11th grade football recruit from Fulton County, Georgia, passed away last night after being injured in a scrimmage. The cause of death is uncertain as an autopsy hasn’t yet been performed. Johnny T. White, his high school coach from 2009 to 2011, had nothing but overwhelmingly positive things to say about Turman’s character. “He’s one of the best kids I’ve ever dealt with in my 18 years of coaching, period, hands down,” White said. “He was quiet but always smiling. He had a real good spirit. It was always yes sir, no sir. He enjoyed his team, and he loved his teammates. Just a great kid.” Turman was also a very talented cornerback as evidenced by his early offer from Coach Stoops and staff.
