Big 2017 OL Earns Rutgers Offer

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood verbally offered Passaic (N.J.) County Tech 2017 tackle Carter Warren a scholarship Saturday at the Big Man Academy. The cousin of Rutgers left tackle Keith Lumpkin, Warren spoke with Scout about his first scholarship offer.

As Keith Lumpkin’s Rutgers success story approaches its conclusion, another maybe of the family could be next in line.

Lumpkin’s cousin, Wayne (N.J.) Passaic County Tech 2017 offensive lineman Carter Warren, earned a verbal scholarship offer from coach Kyle Flood at Saturday’s Big Man Academy.

Warren recently learned of his relationship with Lumpkin, and already sees the three-year starter as a college resource.

“He’s told me about how it’s a great place at Rutgers,” Warren said. “He told me that it’s all family, one team, one mindset. It’s a nice place.”

The 6-foot-6, 283-pound lineman worked as a left tackle in the camp, where Lumpkin and offensive line coach Mitch Browning worked with him up close.

“I went to the Big Man Academy last year, and I grinded and did my thing and the coaches started to notice me,” Warren said. “I came back this year, and I did much better.”

Warren was the only offensive lineman that earned an offer during the Rutgers camp, and likes his early experiences with the program.

“Rutgers is a family,” Warren said. “That’s the best part. They take care of their players, so I like that.

“This is just a full feeling of excitement. It’s my first offer, and I can’t wait to show my talents this season. [At camp], I showed my athleticism.”
