Virginia star talks about his leaders

With both brothers currently starring at Virginia Tech, Clifton (Va.) native Beau Warren's recruitment was considered a foregone conclusion for the Hokies. But despite claiming an offer from the in-state power, Warren continues to struggle with his decision. Vanderbilt has recently entered the picture and is high on Warren's list.

"I'm still trying to decide early," Beau Warren said. It's been a lot harder of a decision than I thought it was going to be. I just actually got back from Vanderbilt and they offered, today. I'd say they (Vanderbilt) are up there now with Syracuse and Virginia Tech, now."

The new offer from the Commodores joins Syracuse, Virginia Tech and Furman as Warren's pool of early scholarships. Wake Forest, Duke and North Carolina have indicated an offer is forthcoming.

"I really liked it," Warren said of his visit to Vandy. "I thought it was awesome, actually. I thought the school was much better than UNC; the facilities were very nice and the coaching staff was incredible. All of us got a chance to meet the coach personally, which I thought was pretty cool and different."

Syracuse, his first scholarship offer, continues to be the darkhorse in the race for the 6-foot-4, 250 pound offensive lineman. Warren insists that the Orangeman became a legitimate contender for his services when they were the first school to extend an offer nearly two months ago.

"I love the coaching staff at Syracuse," Warren said of the ‘Cuse. "I would say I like their coaching staff the best out of all the colleges currently recruiting me. They are just real down to earth and are very friendly. I enjoy my conversations with them the best."

Virginia Tech will continue to stay towards the top of Warren's list because of family connections. Brothers, Blake and Brett currently play for Frank Beamer's Hokies and the all district selection insists they'll have an impact on his decision.

"Virginia Tech, I've been around them for the past 5-6 years, ever since my brothers have gone through the process," Warren explained. "I love it there and it definitely feels at home for me. I've gotten to know their coaches and I like them a lot, as well."

Warren might take one more unofficial visit to Duke, where he says the Blue Devils have indicated they will offer.
