“Coach (Todd) Lyght contacted me on Twitter the day after I de-committed,” Warner said. “He told me to give him a call so that we could talk about my future. I’ve been pretty busy with my season and practice but I’ll give him a call either (Tuesday) or (Wednesday).”
“The tradition is very unique, and on top of that Notre Dame has a great education,” Warner said. “And right now education is something that is really important to me.”
Warner’s older brother, Fred Warner, is a linebacker at BYU, and the Cougars will be a key player in the recruitment of the 6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete.
As Warner gears up for his senior season, he’ll have to soon consider where to take his official visits.
“I haven’t narrowed down yet which schools are going to get official visits,” Warner said. “I’m going to sit down with my family in a week or so and talk about it.”
With plans to graduate in December and enroll early in college, a decision during the season is likely.
“I am probably going to commit in November, so I might only take four of my official visits,” Warner said. “I’m not sure yet.”
Warner wants the opportunity to compete early at the next level, although that’s not his only criteria.
“Comfort level at the school, education, my relationship with the players and the coaches, and if I can make an instant impact,” Warner said. “I had a lot of doubts on my mind before, and this is such a big decision that I want to make 100 percent sure that I’m doing the right thing.”
