JUCO Safety Sets Official Visit

The Clemson Tigers already have commitments from three four-star defensive backs. Could another one be in the works? CUTigers.com has the latest in this recruiting update.

6-foot-0, 180 pound JUCO safety prospect Jonathan Warren has just started his final year at Butler Community College. "Everything is going good. We started school this week. Our first game is Saturday," Warren told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "Practice has gone real well. We have been getting out there pretty good."

Warren has been following the recruiting classes of his favorite schools very closely. "I saw on the internet yesterday that Clemson added McDaniel," he said. "Playing time is the most important thing to me so I am following that very closely."

When asked about his current favorites, Warren responded, "Nebraska, Clemson, Iowa State and Florida State are my top schools. They are all pretty much even."

The Clemson coaching staff has apparently been working hard to add to get Warren in orange. "They are trying to get me in there bad. I have talked with Coach Bowden a couple of times on the phone and their defensive coordinator. They tell me they want me real badly. They say they can't wait for me to get in there and help them next year," he said.

"Right now, I am going down to Clemson for an official visit on November 12. I am going to take a couple of other visits but I'm not sure where. I just want to focus on the season for the next few weeks."

The talented safety had hoped to make a commitment in September, but the timing has changes. "I am going to have to push it back. I thought I would be ready to narrow it down and make a commitment in September, but I am not ready yet," said Warren.

"I am still on schedule to graduate in December. I will have to make a decision by the end of November."

Which schools are recruiting the prize recruit the hardest? "I would have to say Clemson, Iowa State and Nebraska," he said.
