Arkansas got another chance to impress one of the nation's best backs on Saturday and he liked what he saw.
Chris Warren (6-2, 220, 4.5), a four-star prospect ranked as the ninth-best back nationally by Scout.com, was of the 60 or so recruits on hand for the Razorbacks' Red-White game.
"This time is was more about seeing the campus and seeing the environment and I can say I really enjoyed it," Warren said. "I think their style of play is great, especially for the SEC."
Warren, whose dad of the same name was a three-time Pro Bowl selection for the Seattle Seahawks and played 11 years in the NFL, rushed for 747 yards and 11 touchdowns last season before suffering an ACL injury mid-season.
"I'm feeling good," Warren said. "I get to put the cleats back on next week."
Arkansas has let Warren know how important he is to the Razorbacks as a recruit in 2015.
"They have been saying that they like me a lot," said Warren, who rushed for 1,059 yards and 15 touchdowns as a sophomore. "I am really impressed with their overall program."
Warren has nearly 20 offers – including ones from Arkansas, Alabama, Auburn, Texas, Oklahoma, Baylor, Clemson, Oklahoma State, SMU and UCLA.
"I don't know who is going to get official visits yet, but I will narrow my list to five at the end of the summer," Warren said. "I have 18 (offers) I believe."
The Razorback coaching staff and others see a big back with the ability to run over you or away from you.
"I think my biggest strength on the field is my drive to not be beaten," Warren said, "but technique wise I'm working on lateral quickness."
