South Carolina offensive line coach Eric Wolford was one of the first to evaluate and offer offensive lineman Jazston Turnetine (6-foot-7, 340 pounds) out of Hutchinson Community College. And he and head coach Will Muschamp have not let up in their recruiting efforts.

“They are still showing me a lot of love as far as recruiting-wise,” Turnetine said. “They send me good morning texts everyday still and calls here and there.”
Turnetine mostly is in touch with his potential future coach, Wolford, and he said the coach is already getting him prepared for life in his room.
“Telling me what he’s been telling the guys in O-line meetings,” he said “He said to finish off this semester strong academically.”
Graduating on time in December will be key for Turnetine and the Gamecocks. He said that’s his goal and he’s working to get that done with an eye towards possibly landing in Columbia.
“I still have a lot of love for them like they have a lot of love for me,” he said. “They are the number one team that talks to me everyday. Everyone else, I guess, they just offered me but not really talk to me. Houston talks to me too.”

Turnetine said he and Wolford have talked about an official visit and they are looking at the end of May for that. He also has offers from Missouri and West Virginia and said Arizona and Oklahoma also are showing interest.
