Date of Birth: 12/7/1986
College: University of Pittsburgh
Bio: Oderick Turner, son of former NFL receiver Odessa Turner, was touted as one of the country’s top freshman coming into his rookie season at University of Pittsburgh. As a freshman, Turner was a prime target for current NFL QB Tyler Palko and was named to Rivals Freshman All-American (second team) as well as honored on The Sporting News Big East All-Freshman Team. He was a team leader in receptions and touchdowns during his sophomore year and went on to finish his career with the Panthers with a total of 122 receptions, compiling 1,681 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Experience: Oderick Turner concluded his college career at Pittsburgh with numerous looks from NFL teams such as the New England Patriots, New York Giants and the Washington Redskins, but a hamstring injury limited his effectiveness at many pre-draft workouts. In 2011, Oderick Turner signed with the Trenton Steel of the SIFL, where despite missing two games due to injury, he was second in the SIFL in receiving yards per game with 108.4. He led his team with 68 receptions, 1084 yards and 23 touchdowns which helped to earn him SIFL All-Star Second Team honors. The Power is looking forward to Turner’s experience with the indoor game and his strong ties in the Pittsburgh community to help transition him into a dominate receiver in an already elite receiving corps.
