Running back Michael Warren is one of the top prospects in Ohio’s 2017 class. The junior-to-be rushed for more than 2200 yards and 28 touchdowns last season. Part of the reason for his big numbers is his style of running.
“I am not one of those running backs that goes east-west. I like to get north-south. I don’t see the point of going east-west. I just want to get to the endzone,” Warren said.
Warren’s pledge to the Wildcats was a part of cascade of commitments from the Buckeye state today.
“Mac Jones and Russ (Yeast) kept coming at me talking about Kentucky,” said Warren. “I talked to my dad about it and he said ‘Why not?’ I talked to James (Hudson) and his family and they said ‘Why not’ so we just committed today. It wasn’t really planned. It was something that just happened.”
Another thing that keeps happening is the impact of the renovations both athletic and academic. Prospects are taking notice.
“It was just the environment around Kentucky and how they are building new things,” she said. “It’s not just the athletics, but the academic part of the school too. You can tell by the coaches and the players that everyone is a family. I felt like I was already a player coming in when I visited. It was just a great environment.”
Warren is planning to visit Kentucky again early in the football season when the Cats take on and SEC East foe.
“I’ll probably go back to Kentucky after two-a-days are over. And I know I’ going to the Florida game,” he finished.
