Chris Warren checks out Texas

RB Chris Warren

As head coach Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns concluded spring practice this weekend numerous prospects attended the events. One such player was four-star running back Chris Warren.

Chris Warren checks in from Rockwall (Texas) High and is 6-foot-2, 220-pounds. The nations No. 9 ranked running back enjoyed his time in Austin for the annual spring game and the Texas program.

"It was nice," Chris Warren said. "The team looked a little slow and inconsistent but those are fixable things."

Warren is one of the top players in the state of Texas and has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Clemson, Ohio State and Texas to name a few.

"I didn't really speak with any of them (recruits) but I did say what's up to Charles Omenihu from Rowlett and Jalen Campbell," Warren informed.

"I talked to coach [Tommie] Robinson the most and it was needed. We just talked about what could have been with a few changes at the scrimmage."

"This game really showed me how they have improved from last year," the Scout100 prospect continued. "I can't say exactly (where they stand) until I see where coach Strong takes the team." Take: Warren has a NFL pedigree as his father was a three time pro bowl back. He is a downhill runner who has exceptional feet for a player with his size. He makes nifty moves and has a nice burst which allows him to get in to the hole and advance the ball up the field quickly. Nice lateral movement to go along with a 40-yard time of 4.5. His speed could be categorized as smooth. Strong enough and big enough to run through arm tackles. LB should not be ruled out.

As a sophomore in 2012, Warren rushed for 1,059 yards and scored 15 touchdowns to earn 12-5A District Newcomer of the Year honors.

As a junior in 2013, Warred got off to a torrid start, but suffered a torn ACL early in the season. Still he rushed for 747 yards and 11 scores. Recommended Stories
