Ohio State Football Recruit Jamel Turner Shot, in Critical Condition

Ohio State football recruit Jamel Turner is in critical condition after being shot multiple times early Saturday morning in Youngstown, Ohio.

A 17-year-old girl accompanying Turner, who was also shot multiple times, died.

A defensive end who played his high school football at Ursuline High School in Youngstown, signed with the Buckeyes in February.

Head coach Jim Tressel issued a statement Saturday night saying, "I'm so sad to hear of Jamel's misfortune. I have not communicated with Jamel, but am certainly praying for him at this time."
