08/25/18- Uncommitted. Currently stands at 5-foot-10, 165 pounds with a lean, athletic frame and shows athletic, quick twitch actions all over the field. Above average speed with shows with his 60 time that ranges in the 6.4-6.5 seconds range. On the basepaths he creates a great amount of pressure on the pitcher as he gets aggressive leads, good jumps, and reads the pitcher well. Rarely gets thrown out attempting to steal a bag and usually ends up on third after a couple pitches once he reaches first base. From the outfield he shows a quick first step with accurate throws to the bag that topped out at 87 mph. Offensively, he shows above average bat speed with a whippy swing through the zone that finds the barrel often, driving the ball into the gaps. Any ball hit into the gaps turns into an extra base hit for Turk. Also registered a 93 mph exit velocity in the cage. Turk shows a few above average tools and should be a strong follow for the rest of the fall for any program looking to add an athletic outfielder at the top of the order.

05/20/18- 5-foot-9, 165 pound outfielder. Slightly undersized, but an above average athlete. Runs well, has run better in the past, but was a 6.79 60 yard dash. Moves well in the outfield, showing above average range, comes through the ball well and throws have carry topping out at 86 mph. Offensively, he has a simple swing. With little load, he can cut himself off at times. He has quick hands and above average bat speed, with an exit velocity of 89 mph. When he gets extended, he has some gap-to-gap strength. The swing is compact and level and he is an above average athlete with a near plus run tool. 

12/06/17- Twitchy athlete with a lot of upside. Ran a 6.74 60 yard dash and has functional athleticism. He moves well in the outfield and projects to be able to play center field at the next level. Offensively, he continues to improve and seems to be getting better extension through the swing. The athleticism and tools make him a very interesting.

08/06/17- Sleeper may be a bit of a stretch for Turk, as he turned quite a few heads on the first day, breaking the Future Games record with a 6.43 60 yard dash. He may be a sleeper in the fact he is listed at 5-foot-9, 165-pounds. He is lean and extremely quick twitch. He showed an above average arm in the outfield, topping out at 88 mph. He has functional speed, using it to track balls down well in the outfield as well as beating out a ground ball on a 4.12 home to first time. Offensively, he shows present bat speed and when on time the swing works short through the zone. He can get rotational and long at times, but the athleticism is the big intrigue for coaches. He showed a lot of tools and the athleticism and these tools will give him a lot of opportunities and if the bat continues to show the ability to make consistent, hard contact he will have the chance to make big strides.  

06/28/17- Definition of athlete, Justin showed great feet and feel in the outfield with a average to above average arm while flashing a 6.68 60yd dash. Offensively, he showed good bat speed while working to the ball with a controlled violent swing. Tend to be a little out in front occasionally and would get steep in his swing. When staying behind the ball he showed ability to use the whole field on a line. A lot of twitchiness in his actions and has a lot of upside.
