Rockwall Running Back a Unique Talent caught up with Rockwall coach Rodney Webb to get his take on his junior running back, Chris Warren, a four-star prospect who holds offers from coast-to-coast, including Texas Tech.

Texas Tech is currently targeting
a running back who could play on Sundays one day.

Rockwall coach Rodney Webb said Chris Warren III should be in the conversation. He certainly has the genes as his father, Chris Warren II, rushed for 7,696 yards and 52 touchdowns in his 11-year NFL career, mostly with Seattle.

"If there's a kid out there right now capable of playing on Sunday, he would be right in that (conversation)," said Webb about his junior running back.

Warren (6-foot-2, 220 pounds) rushed for just 747 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013. Those numbers may seem low for a four-star prospect, but Warren sustained an injury during the team's first district game in September.

"At the time, he was rushing for almost 200 yards a game," Webb said. "So I would that considering the opponents we played, he would be more in line for 2,000 plus regular season."

Texas Tech was among the first group of schools to offer Warren a scholarship, he attended a Tech summer camp last summer and is expected to visit later this month.

Coach Webb said Warren is being recruited by several schools who run a pro-style offense such as Alabama, but also by many schools similar to Tech such as Baylor, Clemson and Texas A&M.

"He's outstanding out of the backfield catching the ball. He would be a good fit. He's getting recruited by spread offensive schools, because I think they see him as a guy who can fit the bill."

If Tech is able to convince Warren to join the Red Raiders, they will be getting a once in a generation talent according to his coach.

"He is freakishly talented," Webb said. "I've done this for 23 years and I've never come across a player with a combination of size and speed that he possesses."
