MV’s Turner commits to UC Davis

Monte Vista WR Dane Turner has committed to UC Davis for the 2011 season. Here’s what will run in tomorrow’s paper.

Monte Vista receiver Dane Turner has orally committed to UC Davis for the 2011 season, he said on Tuesday.

Turner follows in the footsteps of his older brother, Kale, who played for the Aggies from 2003-06. Only a junior, Turner was scheduled to attend several camps this summer but decided to end the process early.

“I’ve been going to the games since I was 12,” Turner said. “It’s always been one of my favorite colleges.”

Despite the loss of Stanford-bound quarterback Brett Nottingham, Turner should team with Bryce McGovern next season to form one of the best receiver tandems in the East Bay.
