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."
