Dallas Area Stars Light It Up

Running back Chris Warren III of Rockwall, Texas has been on Oklahoma State's list for a long time. It is obvious right now that interest is highly renewed. Recently, Brooks Burgin received renewed interest from OSU, but with a commitment from run-pass junior college talent Todd Mays of East Mississippi C.C. it would appear that the Cowboys might be full up at quarterback.

Both DFW-area schoolboy stars posted some exceptional performances last week.

Chris Warren was at the prospect camp on the OSU campus in the summer of 2013, where he measured out at 6-2, 225 pounds and ran a 4.55 which is pretty impressive for a big back.

Warren had an offer from the Cowboys but now he has a renewed official offer received in the mail.

Warren set the Texas high school scene on its ear on Friday night when he rushed for 471 yards at Tyler's Rose Field against Tyler Lee High School. Warren carried 34 times and started his run of six touchdowns in the game with a 61-yard touchdown run. He also scored on runs of 1, 3, 60, 73, and 84 yards.

Warren won several Player of the Week honors and now has 178 carries on the season for 1,879 yards with 27 touchdowns for the unbeaten Yellow Jackets.

Warren and Rockwall (9-0/6-0) finish up their regular season on Friday night hosting Garland at Rockwall Stadium. Besides Oklahoma State, schools interested in Warren III include Texas, Oregon, Stanford, Washington, and Texas Tech.

Meanwhile, I'm finding it incredible that there is not more of a clamoring among Division I schools over at Highland Park to recruit Burgin.

The 6-2, 195-pound Brooks Burgin is one of the faster and more elusive run-pass quarterbacks around. The emphasis on Burgin is that he can really throw the football. He also received several Player of the Week honors last week as he led the Scots past Richardson Berkner 55-10. The win clinched a playoff spot for Highland Park (8-1/5-1) and they will close out the regular season hosting Richardson on Friday night.

In the win over Berkner, Burgin was 21-of-28 passing for 378 yards and five touchdown passes. He also ran four time for 23 yards and a touchdown. Burgin is likely the best quarterback for the Scots since current NFL star Matt Stafford.
