Nolan Turner signs his NLI

Alabama safety Nolan Turner from Vestavia Hills, Alabama confirmed to TigerNet that he has signed and faxed his NLI for Clemson on Wednesday morning.

TigerNet spoke with Turner after he committed in January about how he committed to Clemson.

"I sat down with Dabo, and he started explaining to me how they had two of their safeties leave for the draft and another just transferred, and he was talking about how that opened up a scholarship," Turner said. "He told he was offering me a full scholarship to come play at Clemson. I didn't know what to say. I was speechless."

He had an offer from UAB and Alabama had offered him a preferred walk-on opportunity. He had planned on going to Alabama before today's Clemson offer.

Previously, the Tigers had offered him a walk-on position during his junior season while seeing him at a few Clemson camps but Swinney had kept in touch with him throughout the recruiting process.

Turner was asked about his family's emotions now that he is a Clemson Tiger. "They all love Dabo, so they are real excited. It was truly a blessing and a humbling experience for all of us. It will be a great opportunity for me to go play at Clemson."

Nolan's father Kevin was teammates at Alabama with Dabo Swinney.

He said that some of his football attributes were that he was a "tough kid, hard worker, someone that is going to outwork everybody."

Some physical measurables include a 36-inch vertical jump, 245-pound bench press, 315-pound squat and an 11.5 100 meters.

One source very close in the recruitment of Turner said that "he will be a great player" at Clemson.

As a senior, Turner had 63 tackles and five interceptions and was named All-State as an athlete (safety and receiver).
