Warren Becomes 8th Arkansas 2017 Grid Pledge

Arkansas lands its eighth commit of the 2017 class on Saturday morning when Monroe, La., Ouachita Parrish standout Devion Warren becomes the fourth Louisiana prospect to pledge to the Razorbacks this spring.

Even before Saturday’s Red-White game began, Arkansas had another 2017 commit in the fold.

Monroe, La., Ouachita junior quarterback Devion Warren (5-11, 170) - who the Razorbacks see was a wide receiver prospect in college - pledged to the Razorbacks on Saturday morning.

Warren, one of over 50 signees, commits and additional prospects on campus Saturday, became the Razorbacks’ eight commit of the 2017 class and the fourth from Louisiana.

"We went into the room with my parents,” Warren said. “I told my parents that I'm really liking the school and that I want to make my verbal commitment today. They were very truthful with me, and that kind of helped my decision. I told them I still want to take my visits and they said that's okay."

Warren had over 2,200 yards total offense last season and has offers from Arkansas, Memphis, Colorado State, Louisiana Tech and Louisiana-Monroe as well as interest from LSU, Tulane and Temple.

Warren admits he is glad to have a school picked out.

"It feels good,” Warren said. “It's the first step of the process. Now I can just focus on the rest of my high school career."

Warren’s chief recruiter is Michael Smith, the Razorbacks’ receivers coach and an assistant who recruits Louisiana for Arkansas.

"He had a big impact,” Warren said. “I love coach Michael Smith. He's honest. He's been trying to get me down here. I just love him."

Saturday was Warren’s second visit to Fayetteville.

"This is my second time. It's fun up here and real cool. I like how all the fans show up to support the team, it's real cool."

Warren got to see plenty of Arkansas’ offense led last season by quarterback Brandon Allen on television.

"I feel comfortable,” Warren said. “I feel like I'll be a good fit for the offense. I've watched them a lot on TV and how Brandon Allen threw all of those touchdowns. I think I'll fit in great."
