Warren Discusses Commitment

Brandon Warren talks about his commitment to Florida State. He is FSU's fourth verbal commitment and second tight end to pledge to the Seminoles.

When Brandon Warren got home from his recent road trip to Florida State, Miami and LSU the senior tight end/ defensive end knew where he wanted to play his college football. Warren followed his heart and decided on his childhood favorite team – Florida State.

"It came down to those three teams and Tennessee," said Warren, from Alcoa, Tennessee. "I have been to U-T a few times but when I got done seeing FSU, Miami and LSU I knew where I wanted to go."

So yesterday before his football workout Warren got word that FSU Head Coach Bobby Bowden wanted to speak with him. For Warren, the timing worked out well because he had something to say to the Head Seminole.

"I talked with Coach (John) Lilly yesterday and he said coach Bowden wanted to speak with me so it worked out great. It is a load off of my back and it was honestly a tough decision.

"FSU is a place where I always wanted to play and when I went on my visit there I felt right at home. I also love the tradition at Florida State. I saw all those Hall of Fame pictures and I knew all those guys and that got me all excited. The academic support is very good as well. They have it all and FSU is the total package for me."

Warren, 6-2 and 235 pounds caught 45 passes for 1,000 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also added 20 sacks, 25 tackles for loss and 70 overall tackles. He is good enough to play tight end or defensive end for the ‘Noles. What position does he prefer?

"I want to play offense but I won't know for sure what I will play until I get their next year."

Warren is the No. 15 rated tight end prospect in the country according to Scout.com. He is the second super tight end prospect FSU has landed within the last week. Caz Piurowski, from Land O'Lakes (Fla.) committed to the Seminoles back on July 6th. He is the 8th rated tight end prospect in the nation according to Scout.com. Both Warren and Piurowski are four-star prospects.
