Warrick Back in Action Soon?
There have been an insane amount of top prep athletes going down with injuries. And while this bug has hit a number of programs across the country, the Texas commitments have had more than a few on the list. One of those was Cypress (TX) Falls wide receiver Jacorey Warrick. But now that the surgery has already taken place, where do things stand with Warrick in regards to getting back on the field? "I have been doing well. I have been doing some rehabbing and now it's about getting fully healed," Warrick said. "The surgery was a few weeks ago and I have my full range of motion back." That's good news as it seems as though the 5-foot-10, 165-pound Warrick will be back a bit sooner than expected. Of course while he was out, his Cy Falls team is still racking up a number of wins and seemed to be getting it done in his absence. "My guys are still playing hard. We lost a tough one to Langham Creek, but we are doing good," Warrick said. "As far as the team performing, I'm not too worried about that." So while his Cy Falls teammates are looking to welcome him back within the month of November, his future team is equally concerned about his health as well. Over the summer, Warrick made the pledge to Texas and up until he got injured, he was present for all of the Longhorn home games. He did not say when he would make the next game or if he would, but his official visit is scheduled for December 8 he stated. His last game was the game against West Virginia. With the amount of games that he has witnessed, what are some of his observations? "There's a lot of creativity there. The team has a balanced attack and it is getting going," Warrick said. "I like the balanced attack. For a receiver, you have to make sure and capitalize when the ball comes to you. I also like when the receivers come in motion and get the ball on those jet sweeps." That makes sense seeing that Warrick has made a living on those types of plays with his Cy Falls team. During the time that he has been sidelined and not on the 40 Acres, that has not stopped the flow of communication between he and the Texas coaches. He stated that he speaks weekly to assistant coach Oscar Giles and Darrell Wyatt, and even sometimes speaks with coach Mack Brown. "I keep constant contact with them. The coaches have been checking on me to see how I am doing," Warrick said. "You know, seeing how I am making progress." And so far that has been well ahead of schedule. Warrick said that "three weeks tops" is the diagnosis based on the last time he was in the doctor's office. "The doctor told me that I could get released when I can bend to 90 degrees, and I'm already doing that," Warrick said. "The doctors were impressed by how everything looked and my progress. Right now I would say that I should be back within three weeks." That will put him back in the rotation around the second week of postseason play.
