NCAA Football Update: Jerrale Powers Commits to FSU; Vols get Former Alabama CB
Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
NCAA Football action begins eight weeks from now. There have been numerous game-changing moves to watch out for once the 2021 season begins. Here are some developments that will tickle the minds of big-time college football betting enthusiasts who want to see action-packed football a year after it was shortened by COVID-19. Fans will see more of Jerrale Powers, Brandon Turnage, and other players stepping up.
3-star tight end recruit commits to FSU
On Friday, three-star tight-end recruit Powers announced his commitment to play for the Florida State University Seminoles. The six-foot-four Duncanville native will team up with another FSU blue-chip FSU offensive tackle target Jaylen Early. Powers has offers with Colorado, Arizona State, Arkansas, Oregon State, Kansas, Utah, and Connecticut. He ranks 69th-best tight end in the nation and 1,157th overall. He was the second-best tight end in the class along with three-star athlete Brian Courtney.
Jerrale Powers and his commitment to FSU improves the team’s size and athleticism. This gives the Seminoles a fresh offensive weapon along with Early. In the COVID-19-shortened season, the 238-pound Powers had nine receptions for 118 yards and one touchdown. The commitment is good news for Seminoles fans who always choose the team as their pick in programs. FSU is part of the Atlantic Coast Conference Atlantic Division. Schools like Boston College, Clemson, Louisville, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Syracuse, and Wake Forest are also competing in the division.
Vols get ex-Alabama CB Turnage
Tennessee deepened its secondary with former Alabama cornerback Brandon Turnage committing with the Volunteers. Turnage is the second CB to transfer to Tennessee this offseason. This happened following Kamal Hadden, who transferred after the spring after signing with Auburn. The Vols have been looking to add another piece to their depth chart. However, they lost the chance to get Ro Torrence (Auburn) and Karon Prunty (South Carolina). Turnage, who was a member of the 2019 class, is a former four-star prospect that ranked outside the top 100 players at any position.
The Oxford, Mississippi, native stands at 6-foot-1 and weighs 185 pounds. He will be eligible this season due to the NCAA’s amended one-time transfer rule and the Southeastern Conference renouncing their intra-conference transfer ban. Turnage can still play for four years with Tennessee, which will be good news for the team’s defensive lineup. Veterans Alontae Taylor, Warren Burrell and Kenneth George are expected to lead the Volunteers’ defensive backs crew for the 2021-22 season and Turnage and Hadden will reinforce the crew.
According to the top online sportsbook, NCAA Football is building up tremendously and it is just a month away. The new additions from two of the strongest teams – and Bowl contenders – in the NCAA will tremendously help their journeys to the top. Powers and Turnage are expected to generate impact and intensity to their squads and bring the winning formula to FSU and Tennessee, respectively. The Seminoles and Volunteers are ready to contend for the Football Bowl Subdivision and give big-time headaches to other teams in the league.
