OSU Recruit Upgraded To Stable After Shooting

((HT: Columbus Dispatch-Gordon/WFMJ-TV Youngstown))

Looks like Ohio State football recruit Jamel Turner will survive multiple gunshot wounds suffered early Saturday. He was upgraded to critical but stable condition Sunday morning. As in the case with most shootings, the first 24 hours were critical for Turner's survival, and it looks like he's stable for now.

Turner's family now has requested that no more information be given out- which is understandable...

"I'm so sad to hear of Jamel's misfortune," said Ohio State coach Jim Tressel, in a statement released on Saturday night. "I have not communicated with Jamel, but am certainly praying for him at this time."

Turner was also shot back in April but recovered from his injuries. Youngstown police are not linking the two shootings as of the present time...
