Warren updates on his season and visit plans

Rockwall (Tex.) running back Chris Warren updates on his season and visit plans going forward.

Through six weeks of football, things couldn’t be going much better for Rockwall (Tex.) senior running back Chris Warren and the Yellowjackets.

Not only has the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Warren put up some terrific personal numbers, but the Yellowjackets have managed to keep their record unblemished.

“So far I believe our season is going great,” Warren said. “We are 6-0 and we’re going into our bye week. Individually I have close to 1,000 yards or maybe even 1,000. I have about 14, maybe 15 touchdowns and no injuries.”

Despite the perfect record, Warren knows that Rockwall hasn’t played a perfect game yet and believes there are areas to improve on with four regular season games left on the schedule.

“I think we can get better from what we’ve been doing,” he said. “We’ve been making a lot of mental mistakes throughout our games. Even though we’ve been blowing people out, I still feel like we could work on our mental game and be more sound and not get false start penalties or holding penalties.”

Warren has stayed focused on the season but is trying to fit in time for official visits as the recruiting calendar slowly inches toward National Signing Day in February. The three-star prospect named a top six of Texas, Texas Tech, Stanford, Oregon, Washington and Iowa back in August and said he plans on taking at least two official visits during the season.

“I know I’m probably going to end up going to Texas and Texas Tech for official visits,” he said. “I don’t know when, but I think I’m going to be taking my Washington and Stanford visits after the season for sure.”

As for Oregon, Warren said that he had planned on visiting for the Washington game in two weeks, but will instead take the SAT on that Saturday and reschedule for a later date, hopefully during the season.

“I’d really like to make it out to a game,” he said.

Warren remains in contact with running backs coach Gary Campbell, but admitted they’ve played their fair share of phone tag in recent weeks.

“Me and Coach Campbell want to talk to each other,” he said. “We do on Twitter and stuff, but every time I’ll call him or he’ll call me we always miss each other somehow. But it’s just one of those things. We talk a lot. I think we have a pretty firm relationship and it’s great.”

Without a leader at the moment, Warren said that the schools currently lined up for visits still have the edge, but that anything could change. A number of programs are still making their case to bring him in for an official.

Wisconsin has been making a push to try and get me up there for a visit,” he said. “Iowa’s been pushing for a visit and Colorado’s been pushing for a visit.”
