Warner on State of Recruitment

Branden Warner, the JC defensive tackle from Compton (Calif.) Compton College, told us where he stands on his recruitment, his commitment to UCLA and if he's now considering any other schools...

Branden Warner, the Compton (Calif.) Compton College defensive tackle, is anxious for Signing Day to arrive.

"I'm signing on Signing Day and this will be all over," said Warner. "My family has accepted that I'm staying on the West Coast and they're cool with it."

The west coast is where the two schools are that he's still considering, UCLA and Washington.

"I'm still with UCLA," said Warner. "Washington is still in the picture, but I'm committed to UCLA."

While he isn't ready to eliminate the Huskies entirely, Warner said the Bruins are sitting in good shape.

"That's where I want to go, right there at UCLA," said Warner. "I'm still interested in Washington, but I'm committed to UCLA. Really, it's just those two schools, no one else. Tennessee was interested and then they fell off, Arizona had called me but I'm not interested in them and Washington State is out of the picture."

Warner said that he wouldn't be having any in-home visits, that he'd rather spend the next week just going over his decision, without coaches making their pitches.

"No one else is coming in to visit and I'm not taking any more trips," said Warner. "I'm figuring out where I want to go."
