Warren Ends Recruitment; Plans To Sign Soon

Willie Warren's recruitment came to an end on Friday and the talented guard will play his college ball in the Big 12.

Willie Warren's recruitment has been full of twists and turns, as he's made verbal commitments to a few schools only to back out. Now the 6-foot-4 guard is ready to end his recruitment for good.

On Friday the Fort Worth (Tex.) North Crowley standout gave Jeff Capel and the Oklahoma Sooners a commitment.

"I just feel that it will be a perfect fit for me right off the bat," Warren said. "With them returning a lot of players and they have good chemistry all I need to do is just fit in right off the bat."

Warren, who picked the Sooners over strong interest from Kansas, Cincinnati and Connecticut, said his relationship with Oklahoma's coaching staff was one of the many reasons he picked OU.

"Me and coach Oronde's [Taliaferro] relationship goes all the way back to when he was at Arkansas and my relationship with Coach Capel just got stronger by the day, everyday that he was at OU."

Warren, who is ranked No. 23 overall in the class of 2008, is a legit combo guard and he'll be used in a variety of ways in college. The Sooners want him to not only score, but also create for teammates.

"They just want me to be a playmaker and that's what I'm going to try and do when I go up there," he said.

The No. 6 overall shooting guard in the class of 2008 plans to sign with the Sooners in the early period.

"We are actually out of town with my high school team right, so I'm going to sign it when I come back."
