One of the fastest rising prospects in the state of Ohio is 2018 Powell, OH (Olentangy Liberty) outside linebacker Edward Warinner. Last week, Warinner was one of the top prospects at the Sound Mind Body Camp in Detroit. Then a few days ago, he turned a lot of heads at the Ohio State football camp where his father, Ed Warinner, is the Ohio State offensive coordinator. However, he is more than just the son of a successful college coach. He has the size and speed college coaches are looking for.
Due to all of his impressive performances over the last few weeks at camps in the Midwest area, he received an offer from Toledo a few days ago.
“I was offered by Toledo after the Ohio State football camp," Warrinner said about his Toledo offer. "I think I did well at the camp and the coaching staff was there and they liked what they saw. I wasn’t surprised about the offer, I knew they wanted to see me in person, so after that I was expecting it.”
Even prior to his official offer from Toledo, he already knew a lot about the Toledo program due to a spring game visit.
“I visited Toledo the Saturday before the spring game and during the spring game. I watched practice and went on a tour to see the facilities and the campus at Toledo. It was a really cool visit and the campus and facilities from what I saw on visit were very nice.”
Now that Warinner has a Toledo offer under his belt, he wants to look at Toledo and other programs in more depth. The Rockets are in great position as of right now, an expected summer visit to Toledo for Warinner could push Toledo up his board.
“The success Toledo has had in recent years speaks for itself and the fact that as a MAC program that was at one point ranked last year shows the quality of football they play there. I might visit this summer, probably in July, Toledo is one of my best offers so I want to check them out.”
