Warmack ready to enroll

Plenty of comparisons have been made between former Alabama great Chance Warmack and his younger brother, Dallas. Both play on the offensive line, both chose the Crimson Tide for college and both have NFL dreams. As younger brother's final day of high school winds down, enrolling in January will be the next conversation starter.

The next three-plus weeks will be busy, yet relieving for Alabama-bound offensive lineman Dallas Warmack.

"Christmas, pack, Army All American Game, then I go straight to school," he said.

The four-star Atlanta (Ga.) Mays High School product, projected as the No. 20 offensive guard talent in the class of 2015 by Scout, will begin his Crimson Tide career just four days after competing with some of America's top high school talent in San Antonio, Texas.

"January 7 is the date," he said. "I took my finals yesterday! So my principals signing off today that I am an official graduate of my high school. So I'm done."

Warmack found out about the possibility of graduating early just this fall before accelerating the academic process in between leading Mays to a state championship appearance at the Georgia Dome last Friday.

"This semester," he said, on when he was alerted. "When they told me I can take online classes to graduate early. Alabama has known, they're just excited to get me started. This is the same thing my bro (Chance Warmack) did."

The older Warmack was a three-star, under-the-radar type of recruit that went on to become one of the Crismon Tide's top interior lineman of all time.

Little brother, a not-so-small 6-foot-1, 301 pounds, could make his mark as a center or guard once in Tuscaloosa. A left tackle in high school, the shift to the interior is a change, but there's one element he's looking to focus on before his first practice in crimson and white.

"Snapping the ball!" he said. "Everything else, I'm pretty good on."

Warmack added that he's unsure of how soon he'll begin practicing at Alabama after his arrival. He will play either center or guard while in Texas leading up to the Army game on January 3, and BamaMag will have full coverage beginning on December 29.
