According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, De'Antre Turman, an 11th grader at Creekside High School in Georgia, died of a broken neck following a tackle.
The 5-11, 164-pound cornerback was considered a rising star in the class of 2015. The AJC is also reporting that Turman received his first major-college scholarship offer in June from Kentucky.
Damn. That's awful news. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family from myself and all of Big Blue Nation.
