Turek was selected 2nd Team All-State First Baseman as a sophomore.

Futures Preview (6/4/16)
Turek is a strong bodied 5-foot-10 190-pound catcher with some pop. Offensively- Turek showcased one of the better batting practices and a polished overall swing and approach. He starts in a tall crouch with his weight on his back foot. Uses a small stride and a fluid hand load. Turek's swing is explosive - hips and wrists clear the zone with force. Occasionally rises up in his finish to get lift on the ball, Exit Velocity was one of the top at the event at 86. Defensively- Turek showcased a pop time between 2.08-2.13 to second base, and threw 76 MPH. Footwork is sound, but could shave some time off his pop with a shorter, quicker arm action and release. 

NJ Open (August 5, 2015)
Turek is a 5-foot-10, 190 pound C/3B. He is a physical catcher with broad shoulders and athleticism. He ran a 7.40 in the 60-yard dash and displayed a 2.08 pop time down to second with a 73 mile-per-hour throw. He received well and blocked extremely well, especially to his glove side.
He is a left-handed swinger with an open, tall stance and a high back elbow. He has a smooth load and a small leg kick with balance throughout. He is a smooth swinger who has present bat speed and more to come. He occasionally flies out of the zone, pulling his front shoulder out early but he showed the ability to drive the ball to all fields; most pop was to RF. He is a very high level catching prospect.
