Safety Josh Turner to remain on football team

Longhorn senior safety Josh Turner was among six players that were reportedly dismissed from the team but he’s been given a second chance according to multiple sources.

After planning to transfer, Turner met with head coach Charlie Strong Tuesday night where Turner was reportedly allowed to return to the team. But Strong has placed severe restrictions upon Turner.

Turner has played 35 games as a Longhorn and has started five. Turner has two career interceptions, one sack and special teams touchdown.

Turner is reportedly the only one of the six players dismissed who is expected to return to the team. Senior running back Joe Bergeron is looking to be released from his scholarship and transfer. Bergeron is expected to transfer to West Texas A&M a Division II school where he’ll be able to play immediately.  It is unknown where sophomore running back Jalen Overstreet and redshirt freshman safety Chevoski Collins may be transferring.

Junior wide receiver Kendall Sanders and sophomore wide receiver Montreal Meander, both indefinitely suspended from the team after they were charged with aggravated sexual assault, have been given a court date of Aug. 7.
