Antwan "Sandro" Warrick, the younger brother of former Florida State All-American wide receiver Peter Warrick, told Renegade Report Monday afternoon that he will be enrolling at FSU this summer with the hopes of playing football.
The younger Warrick, a 6-foot and 165-pound receiver, said that it has always been his dream to play for the school his brother became a household name with.
"Ever since I was a kid watching him," Antwan told Renegade Report, "I knew I wanted to play here. I am gonna officially sign next month. If it's too late I will walk on and work my way up."
Haven't heard of "Sandro" Warrick?
You aren't alone, as the speedy receiver isn't in the Scout.com database and a search for him on the Internet won't reveal a whole lot of information.
"I wasn't really ready last year during the recruiting process and my grades weren't very good," said Antwan, who attended Glades Central High School before moving to Atlanta his senior year for prep school.
Despite the fact that Antwan flew under the radar, some of the nation's elite programs knew all about his skills on the gridiron.
"Texas, Miami, UNC, Georgia Tech and Florida State all were going to give me offers if I got my grades up," Antwan said.
When he enrolls at Florida State this summer, the younger Warrick will do so knowing that he has experience against Division 1 prospects. Last year in a game against Hargrave Military Academy, Antwan was defended by former Tallahassee Godby star and now Clemson Tiger DeAndre McDaniel.
He finished that game with 186 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
As a junior at Glades Cenral, Antwan registered over 1,100 yards and posted 9 total touchdowns -- four of which came on special teams as a punt and kick returner.
He also runs a 4.3 forty-yard dash, has a 42-inch vertical jump and 3.8-second shuttle.
Antwan mentioned that his brother is in Bradenton working out and will be playing with the Atlanta Falcons this season. As for Peter's time in Tallahassee, Antwan wants to make his own mark.
"It's big what he did here," Antwan said. "It's hard to live up to what he did. But I have to do my own thing and set myself apart."
Antwan told Renegade Report that he prefers to go by his middle name, which is Sandro. He attended Manatee High School his freshman year before transferring to Glades Central for his sophomore and junior years and then to Southwest Atlanta Prep School.
At Southwest, he recorded over 1,700 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns, including five on special teams.
