During his career at Madison Central, Warford rushed for more than 2,000 yards, averaging 20 yards per catch. He also had an impressive 11.8 yards per carry last season, scoring 15 touchdowns on just 105 carries. He's projected as a safety/cornerback at the next level for Kentucky, where the Wildcat coaching staff has said he'll be evaluated.
"His speed and strength as a runner makes him a threat to get to the end zone every time he touches it," Madison Central head coach, Kenny Turner said. "He practices the same way he plays...100%"
Warford chose the Cats over scholarship offers from Eastern Kentucky, Western Kentucky and Northwestern. He also experienced heavy interest from Louisville, Purdue, Indiana, Georgia and Ohio State.
The 5-foot-10, 185 pound athlete had this to say following his unofficial visit to Kentucky yesterday; "It was a nice visit," Warford said. "They treated everyone real nice. I thought the team looked very good. They look to be a lot better than they were last year. I'd have to say, yesterday, made me lean a little bit more towards them."
