Four-star Dallas Warmack, Scout.com's No.12-ranked offensive guard, committed to the Tide last July, but the Tigers are pushing hard to try and change the Atlanta native's mind. Head coach Gus Malzahn and offensive line coach J.B. Grimes brought up the possibility of early playing time in their pitch to the Mays High standout.
"They said I was the type of o-lineman that could come in early and make a big impact," Warmack said. "They said Alabama signed two centers and three guards, so I'd have a better chance starting here than over there."
Warmack, who said just about every Auburn coach is trying to recruit him to the Plains, said he's always liked Auburn and that he is still considering the Tigers as a possible college destination.
"Auburn's a great school," he said. "Great offense, great coaches, great people around Auburn. I just like the state of Alabama, period, so I'll stay here."
He also said he might visit Alabama next week and that a visit to in-state school Georgia is in the works.
